The Fillmore Project

In October 2009, the production model of Spark changed, moving from a stand alone series of original programs to the production of Spark segments, which will be premiered throughout the year as part of the newly re-vamped This Week in Northern California.

In this segment, we follow choreographer Jacinta Vlach and saxophonist Howard Wiley as they start work on a new dance theater production about San Francisco's Fillmore District. "The Fillmore Project" is a tribute to the cultural legacy of the neighborhood once known as "The Harlem of the West."

This Week Produced by Spark for This Week in Northern California.

[Original air date: Fri, Feb 26, 2010]

This program is not currently scheduled for broadcast.
