San Francisco Performances 2015–16 Season

Umusuna is an ambitious and breathtaking vision of the creation of the Earth that shifts giddily from balance to imbalance, as the surface of the stage itself is upset amid towering cascades of sand and bodies that hint at the movement of the cosmos. Not seen in San Francisco since 2010, Sankai Juku will leave you with the feeling that, like a child, you have seen the world for the first time.
