CounterPulse and the Bay Area American Indian Two-Spirits (BAAITS) welcome you to the first contemporary Two-Spirit Performance Festival in Yelamu (San Francisco).
Weaving Spirits will feature Two-Spirit Indigenous artists, many of which are already known both nationally and internationally, as well as artists emerging in the Bay Area community. We are bringing together, or weaving, the ways of the past into the present.
These artists utilize performance and storytelling to visibilize a diverse range of experiences as California Natives, Natives relocated to The Bay Area, and visiting Native performers and culture bearers.
Festival evening performances range from traditional forms to experimental performance art, dance, and drag. Workshop offerings dig deeper into decolonizing sexuality, performance, and language. Curated by an intergenerational team of Two-Spirit community leaders, with cultural protocols honoring the Rahmaytush (Onlone), ancestral stewards of Yelamu (San Francisco).
