This multidisciplinary performance follows a group of people through their interactions with liquor stores in San Francisco's Tenderloin neighborhood. It unearths histories of the Tenderloin by mixing stories from liquor store life, tales through the decades of the neighborhood, and The Book of Revelation. It is an exploration of what the community has survived and what it will see after another chapter of massive changes. This must-see collaboration expands on Guenveur Smith's stunning body of work creating living history pieces, often as solo performance creations, this time imagined for a diversely talented cast of Campo Santo actors. Part of: Transform Fest Spring 2018 May 09--20 2018 Transform, YBCA's new festival, celebrates the power of ideas through transformative performances. Each fall and spring, we will convene leading contemporary artists for a provocative showcase of dance, music, and theater that can only happen at YBCA. This spring, our festival is built around the question: "Where is our public imagination?" An international spectrum of performance from eclectic and progressive musical presentations (Black Women Rock!, DJ Spooky, Mark de Clive-Lowe), visually stunning dance (Capacitor, Printz Dance Project), and innovative, interdisciplinary theater driven works (Roger Guenveur Smith with Camp Santo, Okwui Okpokwasili, Lars Jan/Early Morning Opera).
