Concert of The Choruses & Show Me Where It Hurts
The concert features El Coro Jouralero, the Day Laborer’s Chorus directed by Ricardo Torres. The San Francisco Bay Area Labor Heritage Rockin’ Solidarity Chorus, directed by Pat Wynne will perform a set about healthcare.
In the theater piece, Show Me Where It Hurts, Annie Larson & Karen Ripley, as characters take a whirlwind ride through the Great Depressions of the 1930s and the 2030s. They time-travel from Hoovervilles and hobo camps to the Workers’ Non-Paradise of the “BigBoxHumongaMartDepot”, the world’s largest shopping mart. All social services have been completely dismantled. Social security, retirement, pensions, unemployment benefits, Medicare and Medi-Cal gone. Could it be very far from the truth?” Ripley and Larson have been Bay Area favorites for two decades and have been performing together to standing ovations all over the U.S.
