The Book is
multidimensional and multimedia dance installation by Aky K Productions,
and presented by SOMArts Cultural Center, in which the public is
invited to cohabit the dancers’ space, changing the performance dynamic
thereby inserting personal stories into the ever-changing narrative and
participating in the creation of a collective public diary. The
Book, according to lead artist Erika
"is a meditation on the inner world of the artist. The Book is a
kaleidoscope of sketches, snippets of thought,
debris of feelings, traces of movement, and echoes of sounds that we
heard. This world pulses with unshaped ideas and unformed beauty, a
compelling in its limitless possibilities”.
Each performance is a single page from The Book, and each episodic re-performance invites a different guest artist to enter and perform as the central performer within this structure.

Insurrection, Connection & Community Through the Arts
SOMArts cultivates access to the arts within the Bay Area by collaborating with community-focused artists and organizations. Together, we engage the power of the arts to provoke just and fair inclusion, cultural respect, and civic participation.
Founded in 1979, SOMArts embraces the entire spectrum of arts practice and cultural identity, and it is beloved in San Francisco as a truly multicultural, community-built space where cutting-edge events and counterculture commingle with traditional art forms.
When a SOMArts produced event is ticketed, you can buy it here on EventBrite. SOMArts frequently hosts independent productions that manage advance tickets separately, so you may be directed elsewhere from an event page.
