LoCura-Promo_Feb2011_400px2

Direct from San Francisco’s fertile music scene, LoCura taps into the diverse sounds that have a rich history in the Bay Area, weaving them together in an uncanny way to reveal their common roots.  Mixing Flamenco with Reggae and Cumbia with Ska through contagious rhythms and multiple languages, their music takes you on a ride through a day in the emerging globalized experience where the movement of people and ideas are in constant flux.  Reflecting lead vocalist Kata’s own experience of growing up Spanish American in Spain, Italy, and the U.S., LoCura’s music rides the borders of identity and migration piecing together a mosaic of our myriad cultures and experiences.  In Spain the expression “Ida y Vuelta” is used to describe certain styles within Flamenco that made a “round-trip” from Spain to Latin America, mixing with music from the African slave and Indigenous populations. With this idea of music traveling and music as creative resistance, LoCura takes the trip back again mixing it up with their own Califas Flamenkito, Reggae, and Cuban Son styles. Moved by the music that crosses borders and takes root in different lands, LoCura draws from this creative ‘rebelde’ spirit to cultivate the cures passed on from our ancestors.

ClownSnotBombs is a non-profit community circus troupe that believes joy and laughter are a fundamental human right. Our mission is to provide quality affordable entertainment and learning opportunities for all Bay Area communities. We are a company of eight multi-talented physical theater artists, acrobats, circus performers, and musicians and our work weaves dynamic physical theater with comedia and acrobatics into an extravaganza of wonder that tickles the funny bone.

BreakThrough

All of us occasionally reach a point when “enough is enough.” At such times

it seems we must do something, anything, even if it later turns out to be a

mistake, to throw off the burdens and restrictions that are limiting us.

If we don’t, they threaten to suffocate and cripple our very life energy itself.

If you are now feeling that “enough is enough,” allow yourself to take

the risk of shattering the old patterns and limitations that have kept your

energy from flowing. In doing so you will be amazed at the vitality and

empowerment this Breakthrough can bring to your life.

    OUR THEME: TECHNOLOGY AS SAVIOR!

    Through a multitude of technological devices we have expanded our sense of what is real, what is possible, how we relate and what we find gratifying. We can text one another instantaneously across oceans, meet and converse online with groups of strangers at any given moment about the trajectory of asteroids, express our opinions to political leaders via e-mail, and expand our social network of “friends” seemingly without limit! We watch reality shows about other’s lives and create better virtual versions of ourselves as we fly through the Interwebs in enhanced real-time. Miraculous devices have become so ingrained in who we are, how we work, think and relate that we could not imagine life without them or the immediacy and satisfaction they offer. And why would we?! Technology is SAVING our economy and way of life, even as it reinvents everything!

    It is magic AND salvation! Or is it an addictive form of social euphoria? Maybe both.

    We encourage you to embody and interpret this theme as you feel inspired, to bring some form of technology—whether an eggbeater or a mainframe; and merge with Technology to create a living altar to technologies – past, present and future!

    …And if we can’t save the day, well…at least we’ll make a good night of it!

    So, whether you come as a GIZMOpolitan, a GADJETarian, a Technopheliac…or skip all the BITS and BYTES and come as you truly are—we look forward to seeing you and creating a most unusual immersive social environment TOGETHER!
