The Yerba Buena area is surrounded by some of the best hotels and restaurants - we followed up by going to The View for drinks before dinner at Amber, both of which were lovely.

Description

Hip hop street dance explodes onto the stage, as Rennie Harris Puremovement brings its provocative and controversial new work to YBCA for the first time. In Facing Mekka, YBCA Wattis Artist-in-Residence Harris leads us away from the usual secularity of hip hop to an engagement with deeper spiritual questions, presenting an alternative and compassionate vision of a troubled world and the means to heal if we will take it. At times disturbing, often joyful and always provocative, Harris is both the master and the innovator of this most vital of contemporary art forms.
