      San Francisco's Red Jade Collective has intrigued and engaged
      audiences throughout California, the east coast, and Asia with its
      experimental multidisciplinary performances fusing elements of Jazz,
      West African, Cuban, Brazilian, American Indian, Japanese, and
      Filipino music traditions with American modern dance, folk dance, and
      improvisation. The work focuses on the organic integration of music
      and dance, and the representation of the unique mixture of cultures
      in the Bay Area. In their vision to step beyond the typical roles of
      musician and dancer, the artists generate new bodies of phrases and
      sounds with traditional and non-traditional vocabulary.


      Crossing Currents relates the struggle to find and retain a sense of
      modern urban identity through crosscultural music and dance. The
      core stories represented within the work are those of each of the
      performers and their evolving personal artistic struggles within
      their disciplines. As such, the aim of the performance is not to
      retell the older stories embodied in the traditions represented by
      the Red Jade Collective but instead to respectfully offer a real-time
      portrait of shared artistic evolution grounded in tradition and
      evolving through the interactions portrayed onstage. In this way the
      work also seeks to function as a representative vision for both
      individuals and larger communities within San Francisco.


      Featured artists include Jimmy Biala, Lenora Lee, John-Carlos Perea,
      Jen Shyu, and Melody Takata.
