Duniya Dance and Drum Company is a racial-justice performing arts organization. Our mission is to cultivate respect for traditional forms, foster cultural exchange, effect social justice and engage in community building. Duniya performs and teaches traditional and innovative performance pieces from Guinea, West Africa and Punjab, India.
We’re asking for funding to support 3 major upcoming productions:
1. Raíces et Révolution (“Roots and Revolution”), a dance performance about Cuba and Guinea’s cultural and political relationships in collaboration with Dance Mission Theater and Susana Pedroso, coming October 2024.
2. South Asian Radical History Walking Tour. The tour will cover sites of radical South Asian history in the Mission district and includes site-specific dance performances, coming spring 2024.
3. African Arts Festival. This will be our 5th free festival at McLaren Park in SF, coming September 2024.
