orange (Maryann Hulsman) discovered she was a dancer during her first year at Burning Man in 2002, and soon moved to San Francisco to immerse herself in the underground dance scene. She found Bad Unkl Sista in 2005, and has been working with them in various capacities since then.

orange loves color, costume, movement, and communication, and has found Bad Unkl Sista to be a deeply satisfying forum for her to explore each of these areas of expression. She is an untrained dancer who is building her dance practice through unconventional tactics, and loves the way Butoh pulls her into her body and emotions.

orange has a master’s degree in urban planning, with a focus on how arts and culture can be used to build community. She believes in the power of dance to bring people together and to strengthen relationships.
