The People – SF

Associated with the sixth edition of Yerba Buena Center for the Arts’ triennial exhibition “Bay Area Now” — a varied roundup showcasing artists inspired by the region and beyond — is a presentation by the performance troupe Big Art Group called “The People: San Francisco.” The site-specific outdoor extravaganza, which loosely recreates the story of Aeschylus’ “Oresteia,” combines live theater with real-time, large-scale video projection and features interviews with locals who voice their thoughts about democracy, war, terrorism and justice. The production happens at street level at Z Space (450 Florida Street, San Francisco, CA 94110) on Sept. 16-17 at 8 PM. Admission will be $10.
