PULP, founded in 2019, is a San Francisco based dance company led under the artistic direction of Jenna Valez. We create dances about humans to uncover aspects of our waking selves. We dance to understand and discover new potentials within ourselves for ourselves, other artists, and our community. We dance to help ourselves navigate the world and hopefully help light the way for others. Through our process-based work, we hold space for all perspectives through design-based abstraction and generosity. The process and product of our work demonstrate tones of continuous rhythm, quirkiness, and physical vigor.
PULP has presented work at several Bay Area venues including ODC, Golden Gate Park, Joe Goode, Dance Mission Theater, LevyDANCE, and SAFEhouse Arts. The company has been granted residencies through RAW SAFEhouse Arts and LevySALON. PULP participated by invitation in competitive mentorships through ODC Pilot, Mark Foehringer’s Young Choreographer Forum, and Doug Varone’s DEVICES, from which the company studied and performed in New York City.
