We are SO VERY EXCITED to share that we’re heading across the pond to the Golden Gate City, San Francisco, in September!
Spending time with Team Scary member Christina Li, we’re taking our own special brand of fearless feminist entertainment to the streets – literally!
If you live there, will be there, or have friends there – this is what we’re planning
- Experience the history of North Beach and Chinatown come to life in this immersive and self-guided experience. You’ll see actors and singers placed around the city tell the stories of the fictional and real women and how they shaped San Francisco
- Sunday, 10th September, 12pm – 3pm. Walks start every 20 minutes from 12pm – 3pm and last approx. 1 hour.
- Scary Little Girls Artistic Director Rebecca Mordan and San Francisco local Christina Li revamp the award-winning Edinburgh Fringe show “Riot Showgrrrls Club” to peel back how porn has impacted women in the 10 years since the show’s debut. With depth, laughter, data, and music we dive into the impacts and new trends of the consumption – revenge porn, TikTok, OnlyFans, and more. Clarion Performing Arts Center has always had cutting edge events for art, gender, and social issues
- Saturday 16th September, 7pm, Clarion Centre
- When chocolate was first brought to England in the 1600s, it was considered a taboo substance, enjoyed only by the risque and elite in private salons. Some of our finest literature was also once considered too provocative for public consumption and was heard in similar salon environments by only the boldest of ears. We recreate these intimate environs, combining mouthwatering chocolate treats with tales of the secret, banned and scandalous from authors such as Lord Byron, John Donn, Angela Carter and Joanne Harris. Performed, read and sung to you by guest artists from around San Francisco, the Salon du Chocolat invites you to succumb to a literary seduction!
- Sunday 17th September, 8pm, Clarion Centre
- Join us at Adobe Books in San Francisco for a talk with Rebecca Mordan about her book, Out of the Darkness: Greenham Voices 1981 – 2000.
- Our own Artistic Director Rebecca will read, tell stories of the women – including several American women – who were at Greenham, and sing songs from the Greenham Song Book before answering all your burning Greenham questions.
- Sunday 17th September, 3pm – 4pm, Adobe Books
Will we see you there? We’d love to!
