Yosimar Reyes & He(R)evolution

Friday November 16, 2007
$10 adv. $12 dr. - 8pm

Yosimar Reyes

A San Jose, CA-based poet, he migrated to the United States at the age of 3, yet he continues to maintain strong cultural roots, and uses both English and Spanish to express himself in his poetry. His poetry stems from his experiences, his neighborhood and the social political issues that affect him and the greater community. He holds the title of the 2006 South Bay Teen Grand Slam Champion, and has performed all over the Bay Area. He is currently developing an autobiographical poetic collage that not only lets you see his true colors, but those of the people that surround him.



He(R)evolution

Written and performed by Julia Grob. He(R)evolution is a one-woman biographical show of a young woman struggling to understand her identity, both personal and political. Raised by her Jewish-American mother, the playwright searches to understand her roots to Chile and her relationship with her Chilean father. The actress weaves the narratives of six distinct characters in her show, including her mother, father, a female political activist, a comical "Gringo" solidarity worker, her namesake, Julia, subject of Lillian Hellman's story "Julia," and finally herself. Ultimately the show explores themes of political activism, womanhood, and fate, as the playwright/performer places herself in an honored tradition of female revolutionaries living a radical, life-centered vision of activism.
