Mission Fusion  is a gathering of arts and cultures to build bridges within our community in and around Jefferson High School in Daly City, California. The performance group was founded in 2000 by director Heike Mansel.

PANDORA 2020

Video edits by Alleya De Los Santos and Heike Mansel

Hope is only good when there is action.

This year, in “Pandora” we bring awareness to our community by bringing back issues we danced about in the previous 19 shows.

In Mission Fusion’s twist of the myth of Pandora’s Box, Pandora opens the box to release all the evils from previous Mission Fusion shows and only trapping Hope inside. Pandora, being the first woman on Earth, does not yet know the difference between good and bad/right and wrong. Gaia, the Planet Earth and the ultimate Good, makes a bet against the main Evil, Void. They bet on whether or not Pandora (and the rest of humankind) can grow a conscience (i.e. learn to do the right thing) or if they will continue to follow their human nature, which involves greed, hate, etc.

“Not only is Mission Fusion one of the many reasons I love dancing, it also provides me with a way to cope with my problems, push myself, and be supported in a loving, family-like environment.”

AY February 2020

“Everything that came out of this one-of-a-kind experience will definitely help me in the future and that is why joining Mission Fusion is the best decision I have ever made in high school and also in my life.”

JR February 2020

“I can only hope to find something in the future half as special as this program was and is to me.”

WONDERLAND 2019

“ each struggled, each taught, each learned. Perhaps the greatest gift Alice brought back from Wonderland was a fresh perspective, a new mindset. You see, every person, place, or thing is wonderful…” KG

Being in Mission Fusion has given me a voice and a way to express myself. JD

The performance was magical, and mad – as the mad hatter would say. AR

“Thanks again for the awesome show- so many things earned my heart- most of all the great QUESTIONS that were asked throughout the show, and Alicia/Alice/Alex’s perseverance and transparency. Life is not black and white, and the show grappled with a lot of grays”.
