KUNST-STOFF arts – 1 Grove Street, San Francisco CA 94102

FRESH Festival opened 2014 with an abundance of embodied art, action and interaction, facilitated by some of the San Francisco Bay Area’s finest experimental dance and performance makers, masters, movers and shakers. FRESH 2014 inhabited 2 spaces, KUNST-STOFF arts and CounterPULSE Underground, from January 3-19, inviting you to 17 immersive days of activating the individual body via art practices and processes, witnessing exceptional dance and performance art, engaging in cross-pollinated community and cultivating new perspectives and points of view.
FRESH Festival 2014 was framed by CHANGE. We are experiencing a radical shift in the Bay Area – displacement, confabulation, re-branding – in the pursuit of progress and out-of-body relationships. With the focus on technology, science and the math of money, we ask –
What about the body? What about art? What about tangible community? How do we behave and interact in these ways to realize who we are and what our full potential is? FRESH 2014 instigates embodied inquiry and choice about how we move into the future.
