Brava Theater's fundraiser for its at-risk youth tech training program, "SF Running Crew." Due to the change in the political climate (i.e. the war), the artists performing at "Against The Grain" have tailored their presentations to the current political situation and will now be presenting the following: •A Middle Eastern anti-war musical number from The Love Missile, performed for the first time by Golden Thread Productions. •Hanifah Walidah and Rashad Pridgen's magical world of poetry, spoken word, rap, hip hop dance, and criticism about the media and war. •An authentic storyteller from the Navajo Tribe, Sunny Dooley, one of the few women in her tribe who has access to stories from her elders. •The musical and rhythmic palate of Venezuelan multi-instrumentalist Jackeline Rago and issues of immigration since 9/11 with Venezuelan actress Greta Sanchez. •Sho Ho's Sara Moore, and 20 clowns from the Symphony of Clowns, will have you laughing in the aisles as they respond to war from a clown's perspective •Amy Tobin and Heather Gold's apocalyptic sketch exploring the radical notion of being middle of the road. Drawing on a Jewish sensibility, comedy and tragedy, the piece asks when we must choose sides and who we will have dinner with in our increasingly polarized political circles. •The evening will feature a musical MC, "The Fiddler Off The Roof," Kaila Flexer. •And others
