Flash back to last weekend when I took an afternoon break at SFMOMA for the latest in their Stage Presence performance series. This time D-L Alvarez and Kevin Killian with the help of the San Francisco Poets Theater were in the house to present their collaborative work The Visitor Owl. The piece integrated video and live performance as Alvarez and Killian reinterpreted Blackboard Jungle and To Sir, With Love, emphasizing some of the films' hidden and not-so-hidden themes of homoeroticism, racism, and Cold War angst. The acting and dialogue were reliably over-the-top with many shocking and laugh-out-loud moments, and there were scads of familiar faces from the local art scene both onscreen and onstage including Karla Milosevich, Wayne Smith, Cliff Hengst, Christian Nagler, and Anne McGuire. The whole thing was wonderfully confounding and exhilarating both.
