Backstage: D-L Alvarez and Kevin Killian

All summer long, as part of the exhibition Stage Presence, we’re hosting LIVE performances in a specially commissioned fourth-floor performance space created by Tucker Nichols. Totally awesome artist lineup, and we’re posting rehearsal pix plus performance videos every week.

D-L Alvarez, Kevin Killian, and crew yesterday, getting a feeling for The Visitor Owl:

This collaboration between writer Killian, visual artist Alvarez, and the San Francisco Poets Theater features hyperbolic reenactments of two seminal Sidney Poitier films about high school: Blackboard Jungle (1955) and To Sir with Love (1967). Incorporating film and live performance, this production examines a dialogue between Cold War culture, student riots, and Hollywood depictions of pedagogy, racism, and adolescence.

We’ll have video next week! More info. Follow the series.

Check out this week’s performance: Thursday, August 23, 7:30 p.m., and Saturday and Sunday, August 25  and 26, 3 p.m. Free with museum admission.
