Part II – Evening Workshops: 7 – 9:30 p.m.

Where: James Cagney Boardroom & Actors Center

Los Angeles, CA 90036

The Dancers Forum is a full day dedicated to stimulating a deeper understanding of yourself, the industry you are in and the endless opportunities available to you.

The theme this year is Stepping Up and Branching Out!  We’ll look at the dancer’s career as a living metaphor. Just like a tree, the event will begin with setting down roots as a base for one’s own career: the training, study and disciplines so vital to success (note: this is part of the day session). As the day progresses, we move into the body of a career: the growth in performance and the knowledge that comes with being conscious of your surroundings (note: this is part of the day session). Then we’ll take a look inward for inspiration and courage to “branch out” into new and expanded possibilities: training in new fields, mentorships and entrepreneurial endeavors. Discover how to connect your experience with a creative, productive and dynamic future that will bear fruit for years to come (note: this is part of the evening session).

Please note: you must RSVP for the day session and the evening session separately.

Celebrate Christmas in July and the Birth of Harry Bridges at LaborFest!More Info

Christmas in July? Absolutely! You’re invited to a staged reading of A Christmas Carol  with a worker-themed twist and celebrate the 113th anniversary of Harry Bridges’ birth at LaborFest 2014

A Staged Reading to Benefit The Actors Fund

When: 8 p.m., Monday, July 28

Where: Tides Theatre
533 Sutter St.
San Francisco, CA 94102

Who can attend: Open to the public

Donations accepted

No RSVP required. First-come, first-served basis.

SAG-AFTRA San Francisco-Northern California Local presents the premiere reading of A Christmas Carol, by Charles Dickens as adapted and directed by Michael Gene Sullivan, with musical direction by Joshua Raoul Brody.

The staged reading will feature professional union actors - all members of SAG-AFTRA - and will benefit the Actors Fund, a nationwide human services organization for professionals in the performing arts. Monday, July 28 is also the 113th anniversary of the birth of legendary San Francisco labor leader Harry Bridges, and SAG-AFTRA, along with the Bridges family, invite you to join them after the reading for cake, champagne and music to celebrate Harry’s birth.

This rousing, worker-oriented version of the time-honored Christmas story features classic songs from the labor movement but is re-imagined by Sullivan for the troubled 21st century. Dickens’ themes of labor unrest, joblessness and starvation are now set in an abandoned Occupy encampment, and told from the point of view of the worker, Bob Cratchit, whose beleaguered family lives in a chilly tent alongside a band of Occupy activists and artists. They survive by telling anyone who will listen this classic story of oppression and hope, as they all fall further into the abyss between rich and poor. Will anyone listen?

This staged reading presented by SAG-AFTRA members will take place at LaborFest 2014, which coincides with the 80th anniversary of the 1934 San Francisco General Strike which included longshoreman as well as maritime workers along the entire the West Coast. LaborFest is a month-long cultural celebration, including film screenings, historical walking tours, speakers, poetry readings and this year, a reading by SAG-AFTRA members.

Michael Gene Sullivan is an award-winning playwright, director and SAG-AFTRA/AEA actor based in San Francisco. He is also Playwright-in-Residence for the never silent, always political, Tony Award-winning San Francisco Mime Troupe, and author of the critically-acclaimed and internationally-produced stage adaptation of George Orwell's 1984.

Joshua Raoul Brody has worked with artists as diverse as Rick & Ruby, Robin Williams, Marga Gomez, Lily Tomlin, Josh Kornbluth, Florence Henderson, The Residents and Tom Waits. He is also a composer and was co-founder of Tango No. 9, Orchestra Nostalgico and other groups.
