Initiated by Director of Performing Arts Marc Bamuthi Joseph, YBCAway gives $500 micro-commissions toward the production costs of companies based in the five counties of the SF Bay Area who are presenting live performances during the 2013–14 season. In addition to the cash allotment, YBCA will also offer 10 hours of free rehearsal time in the Topham Family Rehearsal studio and marketing support on our website. Though initiated by Joseph, the recipients of these micro-commissions have been chosen exclusively by the 75-person staff of YBCA. These awards are the product of an institution-wide curatorial exercise that recognizes excellence in dance, music, comedy, and theater beyond what we are presenting in our two primary performance spaces.
YBCA cannot express enough how much these individual and collective talents contribute to the robust performing arts ecology in the Bay Area.
YBCAway in 13-14 is made possible through the generous support of The Kenneth Rainin Foundation, Surdna Foundation, and Panta Rhea Foundation.
YBCA's programs are made possible in part by:
National Endowment for the Arts
Yerba Buena Center for the Arts is grateful to the City of San Francisco for its ongoing support.

“The moniker ‘Felonious’ suggests a criminally-minded jazz genius, which isn't that far off the truth.” — Eric K Arnold.
