MFA Student Javier Hurtado presents work at Brava!

In All, Digital Production by Oscar Gaxiola

Brava! for Women in the Arts presents the world premiere of Hope and the Mission (La Esperanza y la Misión) – the third annual production by Mission Academy of Performing Arts @ Brava’s youth consortium. Hope and the Mission is a bilingual coming-of-age story revolving around the young character Hope whose Mission District family finds themselves on the sidelines of a changing neighborhood and at odds with each other over generational differences. Alongside the theme of gentrification, the play examines cultural identity and gender fluidity through song, dance, and humor.

The play ran Friday, April 28 & April 29, 2017
