ABD Productions presents the Skywatchers ensemble in We Came Here to Live, the featured performance of Skywatchers’ 8th annual Festival, At the Table: Visions. Skywatchers is a collaborative arts ensemble of Tenderloin residents and ABD artists, who co-create multidisciplinary performance works centered on the stories of and issues facing its constituent members. In We Came Here to Live, this intergenerational, mixed ability ensemble offers a vision of what it means to have a seat at the table, to dismantle the table, to create inclusive forms of discourse through creative resistance to systemic oppression and disenfranchisement.
Co-created by the Skywatchers Ensemble and Bay Area artists Anne Bluethenthal, Shakiri, jose e abad, Zulfikar Ali Bhutto, Malia Byrne, Gabriel Christian, Dazié Grego, and Deirdre Visser with Frances Sedayao, Rama Hall, Ian Winters, and Peekaboo Jenkins.
