Echoes, with Kronos Quartet, The Living Earth Show, and Youth Speaks

San Francisco is a city where the only constant is change. Whether sudden and loud or gradual and quiet, the aftershocks are always felt, and the echoes always heard, by the next generation. SF Performances is proud to present a spoken-word chamber opera that will explore these “Echoes” through poetry, music, dialogue, and recorded streetscapes.

Composer Danny Clay, together with Kronos and the kinetic electrified chamber ensemble The Living Earth Show, is setting to music the original words of Youth Speaks poet-performers led by Tassiana Willis, with Gabriel Cortez, Ashley Smiley, and Michael Wayne Turner III. Founded in San Francisco, Youth Speaks is one of the world’s leading presenters of Spoken Word performance, education, and youth development programs. This immersive new collaborative project is directed and curated by Sean San José of Campo Santo, the award-winning multi-cultural ensemble dedicated to creating new performances that reflect the world we live in.
