What's Next? Another company's phenomenal show! by Hannah Westbrook

Catch Becky & Hannah performing in the work of another phenomenal company, Tim Rubel Human Shakes!

Alien premieres June 14-16 at CounterPulse, SF.

A little about the show...
Alien depicts members of a fictional human race who have come to a new land seeking refuge from their home country, which is in turmoil. Upon their arrival, they discover how their presence is feared and questioned by many of their new country's inhabitants. They also learn how other marginalized communities are viewed by their cultural majorities.

Passerby : Coming up March 24 & 31, 2018! by Hannah Westbrook

This site-specific piece, constructed by Becky Robinson-Leviton and Hannah Westbrook, was inspired by the beautiful site of the Lincoln Park Steps and the multitudes of people who use them each day. From tourists, to instagram queens, to joggers, animal-walkers, and people of all ages, races & genders, these steps provide a rich peek into the constant flow of life out here in one of the beloved nooks of SF.

Live accompaniment by The Hurdy Gurdy Men (who we serendipitously met on the stairs during rehearsal)  

Show Times:

March 24th @ 2pm & 4pm

FREE! OPEN TO ALL!
