Hemorrhage takes on San Francisco's identity crisis

Standing strong: the women of Dance Brigade

Thinking of herself and her dancers as having been exiled from their city, as so many people have recently been, she envisioned Hemorrhage as a work about having to live on the edges. "Women always are more vulnerable during catastrophes," she says, "because they take care of the children."

For the script, she drew on her own writing but also that of fellow San Franciscans Rebecca Solnit (Hollow City: The Siege of San Francisco and the Crisis of American Urbanism) and performer-activist Guillermo Gómez-Peña, shaping it as a running monologue — a rant, a poem, a meditation, a political manifesto — that runs through the piece and ties it together.

And what do her nine women performers, most of whom have been part of Dance Brigade for close to 20 years, contribute? They sing, they shout, they play the drums, they dance; fiercely, proudly, unstoppably, full of hope, and full of despair. *

Automobile sector now improved a lot and the reason behind this is the implementation of latest technology in the manufacturing of Automotive products or vehicles. So, these days, the vehicles are with latest technology and nice exterior looks. Auto parts industry or one can say the Auto aftermarket industry now in more profit due to the high cost price of car parts and also the repairing charges.
