POINT SHIPYARD PROJECT

ORIGINAL DATE: 2014 | PREMIERE: ONGOING

SITE-WORK

Point Shipyard Project is an ongoing installation performance designed for an ensemble. The project original premiered on March 22-24, 2014 at the Museum of African Diaspora. Since then, the project has emerged as a chronicle of San Francisco’s gentricifation process for residents (young and old) of the predominantly African American district of Bayview Hunters Point. The personal histories reveal clues into the lives and futures of the residents affected by Naval Shipyard’s redevelopment, gentrification and reintroduction into the neighboring area.
