Do I belong in this city? This body? This marriage? This religion? This family? This job? This country? This hospital? This Burger King? This social-network? This laundromat? This funeral home? Do I belong in this fan club?

Collaborators Katie Faulkner, choreographer and Artistic Director of little seismic dance company, and multimedia artist Michael Trigilio, create a dance and media response to these questions by way of an impromptu, renegade, DIY, sideshow. Commissioned by the San Francisco-based organization, Dancers' Group as part of their ONSITE series, this work, featuring 20 outstanding Bay Area dancers, was performed in multiple sites throughout downtown San Francisco. Relishing in the sometimes awkward collisions of art and commerce, media and the body, and the placement of theatrical performance in non-traditional spaces, this work will expose the many questions we carry about our own belonging in the world.

We Don't Belong Here was performed over eight nights between September 29th and October 9th, 2011.

With the support of 130 generous donors and supporters, we were able to raise over $9,000 to support our effort to pay our incredible cast of dancers. We are honored to list this roster of donors and supporters of contemporary dance with our deepest gratitude.
