Event Details

OVERVIEW:

Our 40th Anniversary Season comes to a momentous ending with an evening composed of legendary performance, observance of cultural icons, complimentary food and drink as well as VIP celebration all of which are hosted at the Brava Theatre Center.

The evening will begin with a silent auction and an awards ceremony honoring Sandra Cisneros, Tomás Ybarra-Frausto, and René Yañez for their worldwide contributions to the Latino community.  Following, pioneer performance artist and activist, El Mad Mex Gómez-Peña (Guillermo Gómez-Peña), will present the San Francisco premier of Strange Democracy. With his signature “Chicano cyber-punk” wit, the artist addresses several issues such as the challenges that Obama is facing as well as the U.S.’s anti-immigration hysteria.  The performance will include a guest appearance by writer Sandra Cisneros who is known for her contributions to The Village Voice and The New York Times, and is the author of The House on Mango Street.  The evening will end with a VIP after-party with music and catering by Radio Africa & Kitchen, who will offer an exotic hybrid menu influenced by the cuisines of the Mediterranean and Red Sea countries. Following the Gala celebration all guests are invited to attend Lunada: Beyond the Bay- Fresno & L.A. with complimentary admission.
