Ko Labs Presents: The Gods of San Francisco
In association with Footloose and Epic Megalopolis Productions
A Ko Labs presents:
THE GODS OF SAN FRANCISCO
A New One Act Musical!
Ko Labs presents The Gods of San Francisco, a new one-act musical about an estranged mother and daughter, the men they love, and the Gods they create in the aftermath of the 1906 earthquake. Using original songs, video, and choreography, this dark yet irreverent show explores the personal mythology that binds a tortured flapper and a neurotic housewife across generations. This new work continues the Ko Labs tradition of re-imagining history through a mash-up of modern music, archival imagery, and fantastical storytelling.
The Gods of San Francisco, written by Niki Selken and directed by
Shakina Nayfack, with music by Gabriel Gilder and Niki Selken. Starring Danielle Sublett, Niki Selken, Amity Bacon, Zack, Julie Panda and Alan W. Holt.
Ko Labs presents The Gods of San Francisco at Shotwell Studios, located at 3252 19th Street in San Francisco, on May 13, 14, 20 and 21. The show starts at 8pm and will be followed by post-show talkback sessions. Tickets are on a sliding scale of $15 - $20 and available on Brown Paper Tickets.
Ko Labs, founded by Niki Selken, is a Ko-laboratory catalyst for new theater works. Ko Labs an inclusive theater troupe whose core members work with a variety of exceptional local artists to foster the development of original performances. We work as theatrical archeologists, investigating, researching, and hopefully, reconstructing America's broken body: political body, physical landscape, and social form. We work as an ensemble to excavate incidents from history and recreate landscapes for an audience out of small remnants: a grain of sand, a beaker of water, a newspaper article. Ko Labs believes it is the job of interdisciplinary theater, theater of the artifact, theater of the dreams to recreate, through any means possible a new history, a shared history for the local community and hopefully for America, as divided and disconnected as it has become.
