Joanna Haigood serves as Zaccho Dance Theater's artistic director in San Francisco. In order to understand the places in which she holds dances, Haigood makes an effort to look into the natural, historical, and architectural features of the sites. These sites may often be associated with various manifestations and memories, and these are demonstrated through making use of postmodern dance vocabulary, aerial work, and other diverse movement genres. Haigood has earned several awards—such as the 1997 Guggenheim Fellowship, the 1999 Alpert Award in the Arts, and other fellowships—and her work has been commissioned by the Walker Art Center and the National Black Arts Festival to name a few. Haigood was interviewed in her dance studio in San Francisco on November 22, 2004. Here, she was able to discuss how she chooses a site based on its historical value, and how she had been inspired by some architecture principles. The chapter also discussion of Haigood's work Ghost Architecture.
