Cal Performances' 2016/17 season provides compelling opportunities to explore Berkeley RADICAL themes of Inclusion, Immersion, and Innovation. We invite you to engage with the world's most innovative artists; immerse yourself in the intricacies of a single event or a body of work; and engage with passionately realized performances built around stories of our common humanity.

Unless otherwise noted, public programs are free and open to the public. Follow the links to scheduled events, and remember to check back for added events and registration throughout the season.


Expand your experience by taking part in campus, community and audience engagement events around the events on our season, many of which are free and open to the public. Enhance your experience by taking part in pre- and post-performance discussions, symposia, colloquiums, Cal Performances new Page & Stage book club, and much more.

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