Soul of The City

30 Sep 01 Oct

Brenda Wong Aoki and First Voice will present “Soul of The City” both days at 4 p.m. at the Presidio Theatre at 99 Moraga Ave. in S.F. The show “follows a storyteller who has no more stories to tell. Her husband is sick, her boy has moved away, and no one is listening to her stories. Pursued by demons and haunted by ghosts, the storyteller embarks on a journey to find the soul of San Francisco. This multimedia music drama is a ritual performance. Rooted in traditional Japanese theater and music and infused with contemporary spoken word and Asian American Jazz, the ‘Soul of The City’ reveals the divine in us all.” … “Written by Brenda Wong Aoki. Directed by David Furumoto with musical direction by Masaru Koga. Original music by Mark Izu, Masaru Koga, and Derek Nakamoto. Multimedia by Andi Wong and Olivia Ting. Costumes by Lydia Tanji. Performers include Brenda Wong Aoki, Caroline Cabading, Masaru Koga, devorah major, Jimi Nakagawa, Derek Nakamoto, and Kenneth Nash.” Prices $25-$60: https://www.presidiotheatre.org/show/2023-soul-of-the-city/ or (415) 960-3949.
