(dis)integration is an immersive and magically unsettling contemporary dance about exotic people, racial ambiguity, assimilation, and the Romani Diaspora. (dis)integration addresses persistent stereotypes of ‘Gypsies’, unpacks Slender-White’s experience as a fourth generation Romani-American, and was instigated by Michelle Obama’s casual use of the ethnic slur, ‘gypped’, during the 2014 Working Families Summit.

(dis)integration is co-produced by CounterPulse, with significant support from the Kenneth Rainin Foundation, San Francisco Arts Commission, Trust for Mutual Understanding, Movement Research, Dancers’ Group, and FACT/SF’s individual donors.
