Loco Bloco On The Hill: I Am Alex Nieto

Thur-Sun, October 27-30, 7:30pm


Loco Bloco, a non-profit performing arts organization and playwright Paul S. Flores announce their final full production of On The Hill, a play about the impact of the death of Alex Nieto. Directed by the renowned playwright Paul Flores, On the Hill tells the story of the impact that the death of Alex Nieto - at the hands of the SFPD- has had on youth of color residing in SF neighborhoods - neighborhoods that are currently being gentrified. The project uses music, dance and theater as a powerful tool for communities divided by issues of police violence, racism, gentrification and economic disparity,to find ways to dialogue with each other, and discover opportunities for solutions, healing and unification. Through their interpretation of death and life, the young actors incorporate spoken word, bilingual theater, drum, dance and video projection to retell the story of the night Alex Nieto was murdered on Bernal Hill in March 2014. The production is co-directed by Eric Reid.
