Your Call: This year's SF International Arts Festival

cover_Page_2_copy.jpg

We’ll have a conversation about the San Francisco International Arts Festival, which takes place from May 25th to June 4th.

This year’s festival is inspired by celebrated German poet and playwright Bertolt Brecht’s rhetorical question: “In the dark times, will there also be singing?” Artists from the US and 12 countries will come together to explore the current political moment and celebrate diversity, multiculturalism, and cultural expressions. 

Guests:

Andrew Wood, executive director of the San Francisco International Arts Festival

Brian Copeland, award winning actor, comedian, author, playwright, and radio talk show host

Niloufar Talebi, writer, award-winning translator, creator, and multidisciplinary artist

Nancy Wang, performer, playwright, director, and co-director of Eth-Noh-Tec
