The San Francisco International Arts Festival is about to celebrate yet another year of international performance: music, dance, performance art, opera and theatre. The event starts in May and the shows run from May 18-June 5, 2011: take a look at this year’s programme.
The festival celebrates the arts through an annual gathering that brings together a global community of artists and audiences. The organization presents and produces innovative projects that are focused on increasing human awareness, understanding and appreciation. They develop long-term relationships with Bay Area artists participating in international collaborative projects and also present ground-breaking artists from around the world, many of whom have rarely or never previously performed in the United States. Working in this fashion, their mission is all about presenting and producing creative and innovative projects that are focused on increasing human awareness, understanding, and appreciation.
