"The Red Altar" returns home to San Francisco for a special, one-night only presentation by Eth-Noh-Tec co-directors Nancy Wang and Robert Kikuchi-Yngojo.
A multi-media performance about six teenagers who crossed the ocean from China, crashed in the Monterey Bay of California, and began the fishing industry in Monterey Bay in 1850. In the face of anti-Chinese legislation, media propaganda with racist caricatures, and outright violence, they persevered with courage and ingenuity in an effort to lay down roots in their volatile new home. Seven generations later, their story is finally being told.
