Bay Area Now 7’s core concept is to experiment with new approaches to traditional curatorial structures that highlight collaboration within our region’s cultural eco-system and which push beyond the boundaries of the performance stage towards a multidisciplinary celebration of some of the most exciting artistic voices in the Bay Area today. The performing artists, selected from among a pool of community partner nominees, include vocalists Antique Naked Soul; jazz musician Sheldon Brown; choreographer Gregory Dawson; Katie Faulkner / little seismic dance company; dance theater artists Fog Beast; dancer and choreographer Christy Funsch; Lenora Lee Dance; Eddie Madril / Sewam American Indian Dance; Balinese dancer Kompiang Metri Davies; spoken word artist and musician Rico Pabón; RAWdance; Brazilian dancer and choreographer Tania Santiago; experimental music ensemble sfSound; dancer and choreographer Latanya d. Tigner; spoken word artist Marvin K. White; piano duo ZOFO.

In addition to the BAN7 Performance Festival, YBCA presents additional showcases of local artists before each of the Festival main-stage programs: Jazz Salons, highlighting the Bay Area’s pre-eminent vocal and instrumental talent curated in partnership with Jazz@YBCA Artist-in-Residence Myra Melford; and Site-Acts, featuring recipients from our YBCAway micro-commissioning program performing on-site in various locations around the building; and YBCA's Young Artists at Work (YAAW).
