Play in hybridity. Celebrate the impermanent present. Revel in community. Rethink your humanity.

At the CounterPulse Annual Benefit we get wild for art. Eat, drink, dance, be merry, be many, give money, make it happen. For artists. For SF. For you. Featuring performance and demos from over a dozen artists—including Raissa Simpson’s PUSH Dance Company, Deborah Slater Dance Theater, and more—live music, and visual and media art installations, sensational silent auction, and so much more.

We’re turning it up to turn you on to supporting the performing arts at CounterPulse.

Art Party & Auction: The CounterPulse Annual Benefit is Thursday May 10, 7pm–10pm.
