The Story

Minimum Goal: $6,000

Target Date: June 10, 2018

URBAN x INDIGENOUS (UxI) is an intergenerational multidisciplinary arts convergence rooted in intercultural and intersectional practices around decolonization, reindigenization, and healing. On June 16-17, 2018 - URBAN x INDIGENOUS IV: Unite The Tribes will premiere a new multimedia dance theatre work by Sammay Dizon entitled H.O.L.Y. CITY * and we are asking for your support to ensure the projected expenses for all collaborating artists and designers are met. Based in South of Market/San Francisco/Yelamu, UxI seeks to serve communities of color throughout the Bay Area/Ohlone Territory and co-create spaces for critical dialogue, personal inquiry, and collective transformation.

UxI IV: Unite the Tribes seeks to re-commune, reconnect, and reorganize our urban indigenous family. Across the globe, the hxstory of imperialism has displaced indigenous communities, exploiting their sacred lands. In our urban environment, communities of color continue to experience displacement and separation. As UxI enters its fourth year, we will present art, performances, and panels that explore: How do we reclaim our belonging to our lands, to our ancestors, and to each other? How do we use art to shift our urban environments towards collective wellness and ensure our movements are rooted in fullest, most whole expressions of our being? How do we unite across the borders that have been created for us to re-envision how we live together, how we resist together, and how we shape the future for our generations yet to come? Can we achieve a way of solidarity that still embraces our differences?

H.O.L.Y. (Hate Often Loves You) CITY is an investigation of what it means to cultivate “sanctuary” in San Francisco/Yelamu. Envisioned by artistic director of URBAN x INDIGENOUS - Sammay Dizon - with performance collaborators Jose Abad, Gabriel De Leon, Raúl Torres-Bonilla, and Keisha Turner, this multimedia dance theater work will take an uncomfortably intimate look at the violence against POC and how we create safety for ourselves and one another in this sanctuary city.

* Our first public performances took place March 22-24, 2018 at A.C.T. Costume Shop! On March 25, 2018, UxI offered a full day of free programming for the community which included visual art, spoken word, story documentation, and a music jam exploring traditional and contemporary offerings!*

The WORLD PREMIERE of H.O.L.Y. CITY will be taking place June 16 - June 17 at the SOMArts Cultural Center during URBAN X INDIGENOUS IV: UNITE THE TRIBES
