History Matters in the Mission (HMM) documents important cultural, artistic and political events in the Mission District based on the archival material from 50 years of El Tecolote Bilingual Newspaper, and interviews with local legendary artists and activists from the early 1970’s including Yolanda Lopez, Michael Ríos, Juan Gonzales, Joan Holden and Carlos Barón. Lead artist and director Paul S. Flores interviewed each local luminary to craft performances as both interpretations and reenactments of important events in The Mission from the 1970’s that still resonate today. Flores collaborated with choreographer Vanessa Sanchez, who also plays Yolanda Lopez, and musician Pedro Gomez, costume designer Jessica Recinos, puppeteer Jonathan Youtt, actress Edna Mira Raia, and Augmented Reality designer Shamsher Virk, to recreate the sounds and looks of the five Mission luminaries whose stories will be performed at different sites along 24th Street in the Latino Cultural District. Each outdoor site and venue will host a 5-10 minutes performance highlighting one of the local legends. Augmented Reality featuring videos, artwork and archival photos from El Tecolote will be available for download through your smartphone.
