7:07 am
utility service. i was wondering what the thought was behind that deletion. >> the thought was not to limit it to our direct you till taoeg provision, but, to the degree we had work foertionz dwoement programs, so, not to be limiting, but, it can either stay in or go out. >> okay. i guess i'd like to hear some discussion of that. one of the things that i want today make sure is that, where we are pumping the envelope on technology, that there be a real utility link. so, that job is still the job and we can use green technology. so, i like the linkage to the utility
7:08 am

>> a lot a ton with the community and we say to ourselves, there is this one and this one. we all compartmentalize them, we have our own agenda. our agenda is to create great work. if you are interested in that, you are part of our community. >> hello and welcome to brava theater. >> we are trying to figure out a way to make a space where theater and presentation of live work is something that you think of the same way that you think of going to the movies. of course, it has been complex in terms of economics, as it is for everyone now. artistically, we have done over 35 projects in four seasons, from producing dance, theater, presenting music, having a full-
7:23 am
scale education program, and having more than 50,000 visitors in the building almost every year. a lot of our emerging artists to generate their first projects here, which is great. then we continue to try to support figuring out where those works can go. we have been blessed to have that work produced in new york, going on to the edinburgh festival, the warsaw theater festival. to me, those are great things when you can watch artists who think there is nowhere else that might be interested in you being a woman of color and telling your story and then getting excited about it. that is our biggest accomplishment. having artists have become better artists. what is. sheri coming back to brava, here you have this establish, amazing writer who has won a clue --
7:24 am
slew of awards. now she gets to director and work. even though she is this amazing, established writer, the truth is, she is being nurtured as a director and is being given some space to direct. >> the play is described as ceremony and -- where ceremony and theater me. in the indigenous tradition, when you turn 52, it is like the completion of an important era. the importance of the ceremony is to say, you are 52. whenever you have been caring for the first 52 years, it is time to let it go. really, here, they have given me carte blanche to do this. i think it is nice for me, in the sense of coming back 25 years later and seeing personally my own evolution as
7:25 am
an artist and thinker. the whole effort to put the chicano or indigenous woman's experience on center stage is, in itself, for euro-american theaters, a radical position. because of the state of theater, it is a hard roll to hold up in institution. it is a hard road. i am looking at where we are 25 years later in the bay area, looking at how hard it is for us to strive to keep our theater is going, etc. i like to think that i'm not struggling quite as hard, personally, but what i mean by that, the intention, the commitment. particularly, to produce works that would not be produced in other places, and also to really nurture women of color artists. i think that is something that
7:26 am
has not shifted for me in those 25 years, and it is good to see that brava remains committed to that kind of work. ♪ >> when people talk about the reflection of the community, we can only go from what we have on our staff. we have a south asian managing director, south african artistic director, latino community out rich person. aside from the staff, the other people, artists that we work with being a reflection of us, yes, the community is changing, but brava has always tried to be ahead of that trend. when i came in, i tried to make it about the work that shows the eclectic mission district, as well as serving the mission. those are the types of things that i feel build one brava is
7:27 am
all >> kicking things off we have a fireside chat with the angels and legendary investor ron conway, mayor ed lee, san francisco mayor, and the conversation will be moderated by our own michael aaroningtonv1 . >> it's early. you were here last year, mr. mayor. >> yes, i was. >> is it your mayorship or mr. mayor? >> ed is fine. >> mr. mayorship, before we start i want to note it's 9-11. it's been eleven years and i know that you were up early this morning. can you tell us a little bit
7:28 am
how you sort of marked the day. >> yes, i was and again i thank tech crunch for recognizing a moment of silence. i joined some 30 cadets at our fire station training center, which chief hayes white and commissioners and we read off all of the names, 375 of them, the names of the victims of 9-11. and we have done that for the purpose to recall them, what they did and then i had an opportunity to recognize the cadets and all the officers and thank them and tell them we're very appreciative of them as first-responders in the city. >> i was in new york when it happened and it's always odd for me to think back to that time. so onto some news. you have a lot to talk about today and we're going to try to keep it as organized as
7:29 am
possible. you have announcements and policy discussions and i think we should start with you -- i just love the fact, last time you were here on stage, the only office he had run for was class president of high school. >> that is right. >> now you have two elections behind you, one as mayor as well. it's just amazing. you have another one -- how long are you mayor? >> four-year term. >> so you have three more years? >> yes, and then re-election. >> and you want to get some stuff done and some of that is around innovation. and you have called this the innovation capital of world. >> unabashedly. >> i have seen the banner at the airport. >> oh, gosh of course. >> tell me about your plans >> when i was inaugurated in january, i
