Celebrating Tradeswomen

Tonight I am representing Flyaway Productions at the Celebrating Tradeswomen, Inc. event in Oakland's historic Preservation Park. Flyaway is being honored for a dance that Choreographer Jo Kreiter created last year celebrating women Pile Drivers who helped to construct the Bay Bridge. The piece was called The Ballad of Polly Ann, a compelling production that used oral history interviews, composed into music by Pamela Z, as the soundscape for women demonstrating their strength and grace through aerial dance.
