STRIKE: Igniting the Fuse of Possibility

A City Lights May Day event @ First Unitarian Universalist Church 1187 Franklin Street at Geary, San Francisco, CA

Doors open 7 pm; performance begins 7:30 pm
Admission: $12.00 @ door (no one turned away due to lack of funds)

Join City Lights and friends for an evening of narratives that cut through the core of the neo-liberal agenda

30 local poets, performers, fiction writers, playwrights, and musicians deliver 3 minute pieces offering imaginative responses to the hunger of global capital and its effects upon community.

STRIKE addresses strategies of resistance. We pose the question: what serves as meaningful resistance in an age of disaster capitalism? We shall explore the liberation of the commons- through poetry, performance, music, and magic.

Whatever. Just make sure there's no interpretive dance. No one can abide that stuff, even if they say otherwise. Which they always do...
