YBCA and San Francisco Performances Present:
To Be Straight With You
DV8 Physical Theatre
A leader in Britain’s contemporary dance scene, London's DV8 Physical Theatre presents To Be Straight With You, an explosive multimedia dance theater piece that examines tolerance, intolerance, religion and homosexuality in the UK. DV8’s multi-ethnic cast brings to life stories gleaned from hundreds of hours of audio interviews. Every word spoken on stage comes directly from the interviewees, many of whom requested anonymity for fear of reprisal from their own communities. A poignant and visceral theatrical experience that will resonate with San Francisco audiences as gay marriage continues to be a hot-button issue in American politics.
