Kate Raphael interviews Jo Kreiter of Flyaway Productions. Jo's new aerial dance piece, Multiple Mary and Invisible Jane, explores the experience of older homeless women.Kate and Jo talk about some of the stories about homeless women in San Francisco from a different, on the street perspective.Jo pushes through "compassion fatigue" with her incredible production.
In collaboration with journalist Rose Aguilar, Episcopal Community Services of SF, UC Hastings College of the Law, and composer Pamela Z, Flyaway will instigate the piece on the border between the Tenderloin and Central Market Neighborhoods of downtown SF, where the city’s extremes of privilege and deprivation crash into each other. We will illuminate the experience of homeless women in San Francisco, whose population has grown dramatically in the last 20 years. Flyaway will capture the sorrow faced by an increasing number of these women, as well as the dignity with which they are facing their new American reality. Featuring Erin Mei-Ling Stuart, Alayna Stroud, Marystarr Hope, Becca Dean, Laura Ellis, and Esther Wrobel.
