Facing West Shadow Opera

  • Artist's Television Access 992 Valencia Street San Francisco, CA, 94110 United States (map)

Shauna joins countertenor William Sauerland and cellist Adam Young and a troupe of talented shadow puppeteers for the innovative and beautiful Facing West.

The performance will be held at Artist's Television Access in San Francisco.  Tickets are $7.

FACING WEST SHADOW OPERA is a collective of artists, filmmakers and musicians hybridizing art forms to create unique performances, each akin to a live graphic novel with euphoria-inducing live chamber music. FWSO combines analog shadow theatre with whimsical handmade animation, video projection, pop culture imagery and Baroque music. FWSO creates magical acts of rebellion with our modular and portable puppet stage by sustaining experimental art in the gold rush climate of the Bay Area. FWSO depicts stories drawn from the cultural, political, and natural history of California and the American West, re-imagined through queer and creative lenses to create unique and layered combinations of the old and the new.
