What Will I See?

Unbound LIVE will give you a peek into what happens in San Francisco Ballet’s studios over the summer months. Featuring interviews and excerpts of choreography, these livestreams will allow viewers to see a little bit of the collaborative process that happens between dancers and choreographers. These choreographers arrived at San Francisco Ballet only three weeks ago with some music and an idea. Everything you’ll see has been dreamed up, tried out, and crafted together in the past three weeks.

These works won’t be finished: there won’t be costumes or sets or lights, and you may even get to see choreographers changing the choreography on the fly. But they will be exciting, inventive, and unexpected. Come take a look.

unbound on Screen

We’re matching five Unbound choreographers with film directors to create five short dance films inspired by their new ballets.
