RESURRECTION OF EVERYDAY PEOPLE ALBUM RELEASE
SUNDAY JANUARY 19, 2020
CENTER FOR NEWE MUSIC, SAN FRANCISCO
Celebrate the release of D. Riley Nicholson’s latest album “Resurrection of Everyday People” in a special event benefiting Raices, a non-profit that provides free and low-cost legal services to underserved immigrant children, families, and refugees.
The music “Resurrection of Everyday People” was originally commissioned in 2019 by David Herrera Performance Company (DHPC) for a full-length dance work created to honor the human experience of devastating loss. The collaboration explored the ability of loss to provoke empathy, strength, and resilience. The evening will include an excerpt of the original production by dance artist Lacy Gandenberger.
Connecting with these themes of loss and empathy, profits from the evening will support Raices, in an effort to counteract the profoundly unjust practices of our current government and their inhumane treatment of everyday people who are just trying to survive – a small effort to find empathy and resurrect ourselves from our deeply unsettling present.
*Patron Tickets include a free album download, and the extra support goes to legal services for immigrants and refugees.
