This year’s theme, “Space, Place, and Ancestry,” pays homage to the vastness of the term choreography within the South Asian diaspora, and especially #ghadarinthemission. The Radical History Walking Tour of the Mission helps locate the featured performance by traversing audiences through the spaces we have and continue to occupy, identifying the deep, radical, and sometimes painful histories of South Asians here in San Francisco. The tour is led by Barnali Ghosh and Anirvan Chatterjee who are renowned for their venture of a similar name in Berkeley. Following the tour, Duniya Dance and Drum performs Ghadar Geet created by Artistic Director Joti Singh, who undertakes the personal journey of tracing her great grandfather’s own radical South Asian history here in the Bay Area as part of the Ghadar party, which opposed the British occupation of India.

Special thanks to Dance Mission Theater, Berkley South Asian and APICC SF for enabling WES 2023!
