2019 Sensorium

February 26, 2019
War Memorial Opera House


Sensorium is an evening of dance, art, design, fashion, and music — transforming the entire Opera House into a total sensory experience.

Shadow and Light 
The lobby will feature a shadow dancing installation with dancers from SF Ballet. You won’t want to miss this performance before the performance.

Plus: InstaCouture with designer Lan Jaenicke featuring art by Sensorium host and artist James Buckhouse; a Figure Drawing Atelier with artists Alexandra Bond, Yuan Wang, and a few surprise guests; and pop-up educational experiences by SF Ballet including All about Pointe Shoes, All about Tutus, and All about Ballet Buns.

Want more? Splurge on a VIP experience in Box seating and meet our dancers at the private intermission reception!
