Learn magic with Dan Chan Master Magician. "When I first started performing magic professionally, I found information was difficult to find. Everything in books was either poorly explained, dated, disorganized, or difficult to decipher. In addition, there was little rhyme or reason to the way information was laid out. There were no progressions. Currently, the best way to learn performance arts are conventions, live lectures and DVD’s, but those are expensive and assume prior knowledge of fundamentals. The path from beginner to advance is ambiguous at best. There is no common starting point. I’ve created an accelerated teaching progression. You’ll learn many highly guarded secrets that are compiled in a way that makes learning fun. The lessons are designed to make learning as easy AND as fun as possible. You’ll learn how to visualize seemingly complicated concepts and understand them in a revolutionary way. I’ve been performing since 1999 and specialize in teaching progressions.

Vogue is characterized by model-like poses, inspired by Vogue Magazine, integrated with angular, linear and rigid arm, leg and body movements. The style of dance arose from Harlem ballrooms in the early 1930s. This dance style was originally called “performance” and evolved into the more intricate and illusory form that is now called “vogue-ing.” There are six elements of Vogue-ing: hands, spins, catwalk, duck walk, dips and floor performance. The class will start with a fifteen minute warm-up where we focus on core work and isolations. After the warm up, we will transition into across the floor work and choreography. Not only will you learn the history of Vogue, but you’ll will receive an intense workout. Jocquese will break down each element from Hands to Spins, Catwalk to Duck walk, Dips to Floor Performance. Each element has specific movements that will strengthen and tone different parts of the body. The choreography will be infused with other forms of dances such as jazz, modern, ballet, hip-hop and Afro-Haitian.

Leo, Dawn, Ralph, and Misha are old friends. The two 30-something couples are educated, progressive, and cosmopolitan. But when a racially motivated incident with the police leaves Leo shaken, he makes a radical proposition to Ralph that forever alters the relationship between these four friends — and their view of the world.

In a Japanese coastal town in 1979, teenage sisters Hanako and Reiko run onto the beach during a tremendous storm on a dare. Hanako is tragically swept out to sea, while Reiko survives—but recalls seeing three mysterious men on the shoreline. The authorities determine that Hanako has drowned, but her mother insists that her missing daughter is still alive. Spanning over 20 years and the two vastly different countries of Japan and North Korea, The Great Wave is at once a riveting geopolitical thriller and a powerful story of the unshakable bonds between a mother, a daughter, and a sister who refuse to give up hope.

Never try to beat the devil at his own game. In this poetic fable from Nobel Prize–winning Caribbean playwright Derek Walcott, three brothers — strong Gros Jean, scholarly Mi Jean, and youthful Ti Jean — attempt to vex the devil. Only one can triumph over injustice and free the world from this evil. Drawing upon myths, magic, and mask work, Ti Jean and His Brothers is a powerful exploration of the legacy of enslavement and colonialism. A.C.T.’s Master of Fine Arts Program presents Ti Jean and His Brothers, by Derek Walcott and directed by Dawn Monique Williams, at the Strand Theater.

The music is performed live by the Berkeley Symphony conducted by Colin Fowler, joined by celebrated Israeli-American pianist Inon Barnatan as soloist. “To hear Mozart through Morris’ ears is to appreciate the music in scintillating new detail” (The Guardian, London).

Buy Tickets $18 - $22 $30 - $40

A mix of historical fact and artistic invention, Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson uses the story of America’s brutal and bloody seventh president to investigate the attraction and terrors of populism, using a blend of outrageous comedy, anarchic theatricality and emo rock. A.J. kicked British butt, shafted the Native Americans and smacked down the Spaniards, all in the name of these United States — who cares if he didn’t have permission? Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson creators, Michael Friedman (Love’s Labour’s Lost, The Fortress of Solitude) and Alex Timbers (Love’s Labour’s Lost, Peter and the Starcatcher), cook up an alternate universe (and draw parallels to today’s political/populist landscape) with their musical about the seventh U.S. president. Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson asks the question: is wanting to have a beer with someone reason enough to elect them? What if they’re a genocidal maniac? What if they’re really, really hot?

Seven (mostly) strangers are trapped in Monkswell Manor guesthouse by a fierce snowstorm, which closed all roads and appears to have cut off telephone service. In this isolated atmosphere, can more murders not follow? Of course they do. Is everyone who they seem to be? Of course not. The Mousetrap is the show that sets the record for the longest consecutive run of any show anywhere. It is currently running in London, where it opened in October of 1952 – and audiences today are just as intrigued, delighted and amazed as they have been for years. As has been the case with that production, you are asked not to reveal the ending after you have seen the show. Why spoil a classic?

Danced in cowboy boots, Kudelka’s movement combines several popular American country-western dance styles—line, square, and swing dancing—with sharp ballet technique and raw emotion in this Company premiere. Michael Smuin’s impassioned Carmina Burana celebrates life, lust, and joy—while also mourning the cruelty of fate. Based on the medieval poems that inspired the classic choral score, Smuin’s intensely physical choreography challenges the dancers’ athleticism and expression, culminating in the powerful “O Fortuna.” Following the success of his Sinfonietta last season, former Company member Rex Wheeler creates a mainstage premiere set to selections from jazz legend Dave Brubeck’s lively and innovative albums.

At Eureka Day School, a progressive charter school in Berkeley, all points of view are respected, all voices heard. After all, these parents only want the best for their kids. However, when the issue of vaccinations breaks out like a bad case of chicken pox, tolerance for opposing views undergoes a stress test that is both hilarious and harrowing. Launched last year, the play had the Bay Area buzzing, with the San Francisco Chronicle declaring that playwright Spector “proves as much a master of pathos as of comedy.” North Bay Premiere Directed by Elizabeth Craven.

Irish-American Erik Blake has brought his wife and his mother for Thanksgiving at the new home of his daughter and her boyfriend. His mother (affectionately referred to as “Momo”) is suffering from Alzheimer’s, and his other daughter Aimee has recently been the victim of a nasty breakup. The parents are disappointed that their daughters have left home to struggle in New York City, and worried that they are abandoning their values. The Humans tells the story of the quintessential family reunion: a group of people who love each other but still wrestle with basic human fears: old age, abandonment, poverty and death. Filled with equal parts humor and hurt, The Humans is a Tony Award-winning play from popular playwright Stephen Karam (Speech and Debate). Directed by Patrick Nims.

Find out how the dedication of two families helped maintain Main Street’s early 1900s character, and how conservationists fought hard to maintain the area’s physical beauty and small-town character.

Brian Copeland’s Not a Genuine Black Man Returns to The Marsh

Buy Tickets $10 $20

Brian Copeland returns to The Marsh for three special performances of his hit show Not a Genuine Black Man. The longest-running solo show in San Francisco history, this is the hilarious and poignant autobiographical story about Copeland’s childhood. In 1971, San Leandro was named one of the most racist suburbs in America. Congressional hearings were held. The next year, eight-year-old Copeland and his African-American family moved in. Not a Genuine Black Man is a hilarious and insightful look at Bay Area history, and at the many ways in which our upbringings make us who we are.

SF Tonight: Today’s Headlines Are Tonight’s Comedy

Buy Tickets $7.50 $15

It’s time to take this week’s sensational news stories and put them to good use: comedy. At SF Tonight, you’ll be provided with newspapers, magazines and scissors, or you can bring your favorite stories from the week’s news — hard-hitting journalism (is there still such a thing?) or the latest popular thread on Facebook — and the talented improvisers at EndGames Improv will turn those stories into a one-of-a-kind show that may not exactly be educational, but will definitely be entertaining. You might even be surprised by a special guest. So don’t let the news get you down. Spend your Saturday night with the cast of SF Tonight at Stage Werx in San Francisco.
