    From Cuba: Virulo in Concert!

    Sat, May 7 2016 • 7 to 9pm
    Theater • Pre-sale $22 • Doors $25

    Legendary Cuban humorist and singer-songwriter Virulo presents his new album “Cuba si, Yanquis, ¿que?” in his first SF performance in over 15 years!! Virulo is one of the founders of the Nueva Trova Cubana together with Pablo Milanés and Silvio Rodriguez, has won several awards and has performed in several countries. Over three decades of artistic career he has become one of the most famous comedians in Cuba, has made a long career as a “troubadour” dealing with topics raging from the chile habanero to the rise of Donald Trump in a reflexive way.

    “Cuba sí, Yanquis ¿qué?” gives reference to the importance of speaking up about the future of Cuba now that “for the first time in 50 odd years enmity disappears in one fell swoop,” Virulo says. Join us for an intimate night that promises a good laugh, revolt, and inspiration by none other than Virulo!

    Watch Virulo live!

    Theatre • Free admission

    Stage Coach and The A.C.T. Master of Fine Arts Program present: Black Orpheus: Una Historia de Amor. Adapted and directed by Stephen Buescher.

    After his beloved Eurydice is stolen by Death, guitar-toting poet Orpheus ventures into the underworld in an attempt to retrieve her. Set in a mythical barrio during Carnival, Black Orpheus: Una Historia de Amor is inspired by the play Orfeu da Conceição by Brazilian poet and playwright, Vinicius de Moraes.

    This Stage Coach production layers Afro-Latino rhythms with visual storytelling to bring this vivid story to life. As they tour communities of the Bay Area, A.C.T.’s M.F.A. Program actors create a classic love story with a Carnival heartbeat.

    The group of artists simultaneously launched this initiative in San Francisco and Mexico by Talleres Populares 28 de Julio, and Escuela de Cultura Popular Martires del ’68. By stripping away across a historic, economic, geopolitical, cultural journey the plots of the complex network that traps the people and does not allow them to escape the trap of the American way of life in its maximum expression: capitalism.

    Individual artists and graphic art collectives who the majority are immersed in social movements will present works of diverse formats and techniques such as; etching, silk screening, painting, etc… Some collectives participating are ECPM68, TP28J, Sublevarte, Rexiste, Dignidad Rebelde, Political Gridlock, Colectivo Doscincuenta, Grafica de Lucha, Colectivo Maria Pistolas, Vlocke, Anda La Lucha, Espacio Tercero, and Mujeres Grabando Resistencias.
