Bilingual podcast Radio Ambulante and Yerba Buena Center for the arts present Outsiders, a live radio performance streets, San Francisco.

Radio Ambulante returns to its hometown with a brand-new show called Outsiders, to be performed for one night only at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts. Like previous live events, Outsiders will feature the kind of stories that Radio Ambulante listeners have come to expect — moving, surprising, funny audio stories from everywhere Spanish is spoken — re-imagined for the stage. Outsiders will be completely subtitled, and therefore accessible for both monolingual English and Spanish speakers to enjoy.

Radio Ambulante is a program of San Francisco’s KALW and Public Radio International and is hosted by the award-winning novelist Daniel Alarcón.

For Outsiders, Radio Ambulante will feature stories about people who skirt around the edges, taking the audience to visit an embattled town deep in the Peruvian jungle; to meet Cuban metalheads in the dark corners of Havana; to recall the grim early days of the AIDS epidemic; and hear the story of an accidental witness to a Mexico City wedding.

The show will feature music from the Bay Area DJ crew La Pelanga and a short film from the Colombian animator Malalegría based on a text from the Chilean novelist Álvaro Bisama.

At Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, 701 Mission Street, San Francisco, Sunday, Nov. 2, 2014. Doors at 4:30 p.m., show starts at 5 p.m.
