Berkeley RADICAL

2016/17 Season

Innovation, Immersion and Inclusion

Cal Performances invites you to be a part of Berkeley RADICAL, our programming initiative that cultivates future paths and audiences for the performing arts. These 2016/17 strands of artistic exploration invite you to investigate, imagine and connect by joining in a rich array of performances, supporting conversations and community interactions. In addition to 2016/17 Season performances noted below, a range of activities related to the Berkeley RADICAL strands, and other presentations, on and off the UC Berkeley campus, will be announced throughout the season.

Embrace diversity through the idea that, in the arts, no one is a stranger, no one is a foreigner. Four programs, from across oceans and genres, tell stories about diverse worlds through distinct artistic disciplines.

Mark Morris Dance Group: Layla and Majnun
Kronos Quartet: Fifty for the Future
Black Arm Band: Dirtsong
