Overview
Zaccho is a San Francisco based aerial dance company focused on theatrical productions that often deal with subject matter based in the African American experience. Zaccho creates and presents work that explores and offers new perspectives on the relationship of dance to place. Specializing in aerial choreography and nationally recognized site-specific work on multiple scales, Zaccho explores the history, character, and context of each site. Deeply rooted in San Francisco’s low-income neighborhood of Bayview Hunters Point, the organization provides residents with a Youth Performing Arts program, Zaccho Youth Company, and the Center for Dance and Aerial Art — a new effort that includes artist residencies and community outreach programs.
