"The Caravan" is an event featuring a collection of 5 short documentaries and photography about life along the coast of Northern Peru. From the memories and realities of the participants, we are shown how pollution, climate change, and community fortitude have become daily experiences in this shifting landscape.
The film is segmented by chapters. "The Catch" embarks on one fisherman's day out at sea as he explains the practice of responsible fishing and laments the petroleum industry's effect on marine habitats and his family's subsistence. "Waste" characterizes the common experiences of villages without potable water sources or sewage systems, but few sit so close to the iconic and ecologically diverse Seal Island. "Portraits from the Shore" are snapshots of women in the isolated village of La Islilla, who maintain the land and community while the men are absent at sea. "In Her Shoes" is the story of a woman who works from dawn 'til dusk, admiring the sea from afar since her profession had to be sacrificed in order to support her children. "From the Ground up" takes place in a shipyard where the tradition of constructing wooden vessels is still practiced by proud artisans.
Join us in experiencing our world and the problems facing the environment through another set of eyes.

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!

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.
