BOXBLUR’s 2021 program celebrates its 5th anniversary of performance-based programming.

Since 2016, BOXBLUR has commissioned and presented collaborative projects created in response or in partnership with visual artist’s works. Unique theater, music, dance, spoken word, performance art, printmaking, readings, panel discussions, films and videos screening, and off-site installations and performances, are produced or hosted by BOXBLUR, a fiscally sponsored program of Dance Film SF. Annually, a central piece of BOXBLUR’s program is its partnership with the San Francisco Dance Film Festival (SFDFF), which jointly with Catharine Clark Gallery, present films awarded in the experimental category and complimentary, live dance performances within the non-proscenium-based setting of the Gallery. The films and attendant events are selected to coincide thematically with the Gallery’s visual art exhibitions.

In honor of our 5th anniversary, we have created a short film documenting the distinguished history of BOXBLUR collaborations and the organizations on-going efforts to bring an expanded approach to performance programming to the public.
