Between Dirt & Sky
A musical inspired by the life of Cesar Chavez
By Charles Eurydice Gray, playwright and librettist & Lisa Quoresimo, playwright, composer, and arranger. Directed by Marcelo Pereira.
Inspired by the life of American civil rights leader Cesar Chavez, Between Dirt & Sky fuses the early events of the American farm labor movement with the personal struggles of those who lived it. Set on the cusp of great change and social upheaval, it is a highly theatrical piece that invites contemplation and discussion.
Though inspired by historical events, Between Dirt & Sky is a topically relevant story that offers insight into present day issues such as immigration, labor practices, equality and national identity. Neither history recitation nor eulogy, Between Dirt & Sky explores the psyche of a uniquely American leader whose story is inspirational to both those steeped in the lore of La Causa (the cause) and to those new to its discovery. Between Dirt & Sky is the non-idealized telling of one man's journey from victim to activist. It is the story of a man who - like any other - struggles with his own limitations and desires.
Between Dirt & Sky is performed by students of the San Francisco Youth Theatre, Cuicacalli Escuela De Danza, and Mariachi Juvenil La Mision, with production design provided by San Francisco Running Crew, Brava's longstanding technical theater program for youth.
$7 youth; $13 adult.
