About the Organization

Founded in 1996, Flyaway Productions democratizes public space. We make dances that are off the ground, site specific and politically driven.  Our performances impact neighborhoods because they unfold at the very place where conflict lives. For us, a building is a witness. It holds the complexity of a neighborhood’s history in its "hands," I-beams, or concrete walls. We’ve brought 100,000+ people to sites of historic or ongoing conflict.

Flyaway's tools include coalition building, an intersectional feminist lens, and a body-based push against the constraints of gravity.  Our mission supports the integration of experimental forms with political content; the uplift of girls/women/GNC artists, where voices marginalized by gender remain an underserved element of public culture; and the use of spectacle/flight/suspended apparatus to expand choreographic language. Recent coalition partners include the Museum of African Diaspora, Empowerment Avenue, Essie Justice Group, Local 2, Bend the Arc Jewish Action, the Tenderloin Museum, and UC Law.

We have been supported by Guggenheim and Rauschenberg Foundation fellowships, NEFA’s National Dance Project, the National Endowment for the Arts, Center for Cultural Innovation, New Music USA, The Gerbode Foundation, MAP, the Creative Work Fund, the Wattis, Fleishhacker and Rainin Foundations, CA Arts Council, SF Grants for the Arts and the SF Arts Commission and have received seven IZZY awards from the SF dance community.  The SF Bay Guardian describes Flyaway as makers of “art at the heart of the democratic ideal.” 

From 2017-2023, Flyaway created The Decarceration Trilogy: Dismantling the Prison Industrial Complex One Dance at a Time. The Decarceration Trilogy was part of a national wave of ongoing political action to expose the devastating effects of prison on American citizens.  The Trilogy was rooted in collaboration with community organizations and people directly impacted by incarceration.  In 2024-2026, Flyaway is continuing its prison systems change work via new public art projects. 

Our Flagship youth program, GIRLFLY, is an award-winning artist as activist training program addressing the lack of arts training opportunities and gender-specific social pressures faced by low-income teen girls and GNC youth.

We are based in San Francisco, CA.
