Trolley Troupe Streetcar antics!
What a novel idea!
A local choreographer has whipped up a couple of innovative dances routines with the special aim of taking the world by storm.
Well, one street car at a time, for starters.
“Art isn’t just for the person who can pay $30 to get into a show,” Kim Epifano chirped to the local media as she feverishly put finishing touches on the innovative “in the round” performance pieces to play out on Muni’s N-Judah line this weekend in San Francisco.
For the cost of a streetcar ticket ($2 regular fare) riders will be treated to entertaining shows.
Six dance troupes are involved - including the celebrated Goode Performance Group - who will perform alongside lesser-known companies such as the Sunset Chinese Folk Dance
The annual event has been entertaining the locals (and tourists alike) for 7 years.
Understandably, preparations for the successful trolley dances have become a full-time enterprise.
Six guided tours make up the programs to be presented between the hours of 11 a.m. and 2:45 daily on the weekend.
The creative tour de force starts at - Duboce Park, heads through Duboce Triangle, Cole Valley, and the inner Sunset - to end at the Botanical Garden in Golden Gate Park.
At salients points along the route, there will be performances off the trolley too.
Folks on the go are welcome to catch snippets of the traveling dance show for free from the sidelines on the street for free.
Beverages and snacks are not available, so guests are urged to bring their own.
Break a leg, Ms. Epifano, eh?
