Directed by renowned playwright Paul Flores, On the Hill aims to use performance art to tell 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 that are currently being gentrified. By using music, dance and theater to tell this story, this project will serve 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.
