7:30 PM Dance: Live Arts Fest Live Arts Fest 2017 collides with the issues of the day, embodying political, environmental, and gender topics. LAF expands ideas of gender identification in "SHE" by Erica Buechner and Lara Segura and "Why Men Dance," a film by Keith Glassman. Theses of dance diaspora is investigated in Betzi Roe's "Migration." The dangers of denying climate change are portrayed in "Requiem for an Ocean" by Jean Isaacs and "Enthalpy of Fusion" by Swiss artist Anna Katharina Scheidegger, a two evening exploration on "The Art of Climate Change" organized with help from the La Jolla Historical Society.

In a unique presentation opportunity, Daniel Diaz Meza, the winner of last year's San Diego Young Choreographers Showcase and Prize, will present a full evening of work. "Splilt Bill" by Heather Glabe and Sadie Weinberg is a night of collaboration and physical discourse.

This year, Live Arts Fest commissioned new work from many emerging choreographers. The San Diego Dance Theater company dancers are known to be some of the most talented and accomplished movers in town, and the 2017 Fest allows an evening for their artistic choreography to shine; Minaqua McPherson, Desiree Cuizon-Fejeran, Blythe Barton, Zaquia Mahler Salinas, John Diaz, Angel Acuña will present an interactive evening of dance in-the-round. Another evening includes next generation dance makers Shelan Deloyi, Jessica Gilmore, Brianna Bellamy, Trevor Polcyn, Sandra Ruiz, Jun Ting, Todd Mitchum, and Mario Jaimes bring fresh and creative movement ideas to the stage.
Some of this work tickles your funny bone. Others make you think.

8:00 PM Music: Tribu Baharú Founded in 2009, Tribu Baharú is an Afro-Champeta music crew from Colombia's Caribbean coast who are influenced by the "picó" (pick-up or sound system) culture present in many Caribbean countries. Champeta (originally a term that refers to a fisherman's knife) is an infectious dance music influenced by Colombian folk music, Congolese soukous, Haitian kompa, zouk, calypso, mbaqanga, soca, rap, and reggae. The band's mission is to convey the joy of being Afro-Colombian through exuberant dance, using music as their vehicle, and change negative perceptions of Champeta culture by sharing positive messages through music.

Join us for an After Party at The Loft. Beverages will be available to purchase from Zanzibar.

8:00 PM Stage: Red Velvet The Old Globe stages "Red Velvet," a stirring drama that transports audiences to the turbulent backstage world of London's Theatre Royal in the early 1800s.

Edmund Kean, the greatest actor of his generation, can't go on tonight as Othello, and his company is in disarray. A young American actor named Ira Aldridge arrives to step into the role—but no black man has ever played Othello on the English stage.

His groundbreaking performance upends stage tradition and changes the lives of everyone involved.

Lolita Chakrabarti's multi-award-winning play uncovers the fascinating true story of a pivotal figure in theater history. Visionary director Rachel Chavkin returns to The Old Globe with a stunningly theatrical production of a play that the London Telegraph called "informative, entertaining, and thought-provoking."

Admission/Cost: $34 - $98

Location:
Old Globe Theatre

8:00 PM Stage: Into The Beautiful North San Diego Repertory Theatre closes its 2017/18 season with "Into the Beautiful North," a world premiere written by Karen Zacarías and directed by San Diego REP Artistic Director Sam Woodhouse.

All the men of the sleepy Mexican village of Tres Camarones have left town in search of fortune in the USA. One night, 19-year-old Nayeli watches "The Magnificent Seven" at the local cinema and has a flash of inspiration. She grabs her goth best friend Vampi and her gay confidant Tacho, and sets out on a quest of epic proportions - to find men in the USA and smuggle them back across the border to repopulate and protect her beloved town! And so begins a 1,000 mile road trip from the Pacific Coast of Mexico through the colorful streets of Tijuana to the climactic scene at the Bahia Hotel in Mission Bay
San Diego CA.

Admission/Cost: $38 - $65

Location:
Lyceum Theatre
