Sights & Sounds is your weekly guide to the Bay Area arts scene through the eyes and ears of local artists. This week our guest is Amara Tabor-Smith. She’s a dancer, choreographer, performer, San Francisco native, and Oakland resident. Tabor-Smith caught up with KALW's Jen Chien to talk about their dancing days and to give her picks for cool arts happenings around the Bay this weekend. 

Many creative types in the Bay Area, from writers to radio producers, performers and artists, are managing multiple jobs to feed themselves these days. It's a struggle for many, but for some, wearing different hats isn't a matter of survival – it's actually a way of being. Marc Bamuthi Joseph is one such man: He's a poet, scholar, dancer, educator, director, and performer. He helped found Youth Speaks and the Living Word Festival.
