Detour dance is a contemporary dance company that tackles the idiosyncrasies and quirky tenderness of human relationships set against the backdrop of everyday life. Located in San Francisco, detour dance magnifies these already existing subtleties, present in a city where the smallest interactions go unnoticed. They explore the inconspicuous through multi-media and site-specific work, creating an environment where their collaborators are just as curious. Known for their eccentric and recognizable gestures and contrasting full-bodied contemporary technique, they encourage audiences to reevaluate who can dance and where art happens. detour dance produces the Tiny Dance Film Festival, a festival that features short dance films from both emerging and established dance filmmakers from across the globe.
