The FACT/SF Summer Dance Festival builds on the past success of the FACT/SF Summer Dance Lab and the ideals of FACT/SFs touring initiative, PORT (Peer Organized Regional Touring). The Dance Lab has occurred annually since 2013 and has included participants from the US, Canada, Mexico, and Bulgaria. PORT, launched in 2017 with the L.A. Contemporary Dance Company, supports the creation, performance, and touring of contemporary dance across the West Coast.
The 2018 SDF is supported by a grant from the Zellerbach Family Foundation.
