Going: Philip Kan Gotanda’s “After the War” at A.C.T.

After the War is about life and love in the Fillmore district after WWII. I’m fascinated by many of its subtexts: racial politics, the strained relationships between APIs and African Americans, jazz, culture as a space of connection, SF Bay Area (re)development, California history…

Since I hope that dancers, actors and choreographers would be interested in going to gallery openings, I’m trying to make a point of attending performances. It’s also nice to support work that deals with identity issues and isn’t relegated to second-stage status. To show that this work can be viable means supporting it with your dollars.
