The Araceli Theater Project presents a multilingual theater event, titled "Touched by Cancer: Humoring the Tumor," at two San Francisco locations beginning Thursday, June 28. Written and conceived by cancer survivors, this diverse, community-based ensemble performs an original script and production that give voice to the complex personal, political and spiritual beliefs surrounding the cancer experience. A short documentary film directed by Amal Kouttab accompanies the performance, and captures the process preceding the performance. Experienced theater director Flavia Alejandra Maucci directs the theatrical production. Delivered in English, Spanish and Cantonese, the Araceli Theater Project draws individuals who face tremendous challenges related to poverty and arising from their medical needs. The group serves to reduce the sense of isolation and alienation that often accompanies a cancer diagnosis. The creativity, expressiveness and humor of the participants provide an insider's glance at the emotional landscape of cancer and the various ways people cope with living on the edge of life and death.
