A Walk in the Dark 

Wednesday, Apr 8 2009
Lulacruza, for those unfamiliar with the Oaklandish/Argentine/Colombian duo, is the Latina Cocteau Twins. Collaborating with two dancers plus a poet/painter and a storyteller/musician, Lulacruza created a stage show, Caminantes de la Tierra (Walkers of the Earth). Multidisciplines echo the multinationalities, torn loyalties, and myriad questions facing immigrants. Apparently it's getting even weirder to move a long way from home, now that videophones à la Blade Runner are becoming more and more a part of the nonfictional world. Other questions addressed by the caminantes include "What is a nomad?" and "Is it necessary to have a home? Or can one exist statelessly?"

  • San Francisco Street Food Festival 2014
    The San Francisco Street Food Festival was another success this year. Dozens of vendors with original, unheard-of creations, such as deep fried mac and cheese on a stick, black pea paste pancakes, and Korean quesadillas. Then there was the comfort foods we've grown accustomed to, like creme bruleé, shrimp rolls, and pound cake. Photographs by Mabel Jimenez.
