Loco Bloco Presents: On The Hill Preview Performance & Community Talk-Back

Friday, March 25 & Saturday, March 26, 2016 @ 7:00pm
Brava Theater Center | 2781 24th Street, San Francisco, CA

Join us for a preview of this New Work & a facilitated communication with the artists immediately following the performance. Directed by renowned playwright Paul S. Flores, "On The Hill" aims to to use performance art to tell the story of the impact that the death of Alex Nieto at the hands of the SFPD has had on youth of color residing in SF neighborhoods that are currently being gentrified. By using music, dance and theater to tell this story, this project will serve as a powerful tool for communities divided by issues of police violence, racism, gentrification and economic disparity to find ways to dialogue with each other and discover opportunities for solutions, healing and unification.

Tickets: $10 - No one turned away for lack of funds
Purchase In Advance Online At:
