Shaping San Francisco and Seth Eisen will develop and present OUT of Site, a series of site-specific performances at LGBTQ historical sites in San Francisco, presented through neighborhood walking tours. Through rigorous historical research and engaging public presentations of queer cabaret, puppetry, theater, and dance, OUT of Site will integrate Eisen’s practice of unearthing and elevating stories of queer ancestors with Shaping San Francisco’s 20 years of gathering and sharing stories from San Francisco’s history. In form, it brings together Eisen’s theatrical training and practice of combining live performances and visual media with Shaping San Francisco’s extensive experience with organizing walking and bicycle tours. The finished piece will feature numerous designers and 12 artists who will perform at six different sites in three neighborhoods. Lead artist Eisen will serve as the primary tour guide. Performance tours are planned for March 2018.
