Review for CounterPulse, San Francisco, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I was an Artist in Residence at CounterPULSE and without their support I would not be at the level in my career as an artist that I am today. They took a risk on accepting me, a relatively new choreographer, and gave me all the necessary resources to launch my first production in a theater, not at a wedding or cultural event, as I was used to. CounterPULSE gave me space to rehearse free of charge, a budget for technicians and costumes, as well as money to pay the artists I worked with, 3 nights of shows in their theater with their staff free of charge, and 1/4 of the box office. Their staff also did the marketing and publicity for the show, allowing us to free our time to work on the performance itself without being bogged down by administrative work. I have never worked in such a supportive environment and I fully believe that CounterPULSE is a vital incubator for new and cutting edge art in the Bay Area.
