On Tuesday, January 12, Cal Performances at UC Berkeley announced its Spring 2021 Cal Performances at Home season of 12 newly produced, full-length Main Stage music and dance video streams filmed expressly for Cal Performances. A continuation of the ambitious performing arts streaming series launched in fall 2020, the spring season features a new performance debuting on select Thursday evenings from February 25 through June 10, 2021. Recorded on stages all over the world—in renowned venues and recording studios in the locations where the artists are sheltering in place—all artists currently planned for the spring series were originally booked to perform in person at UC Berkeley as part of Cal Performances’ 2020–21 live season, which was cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic and in accordance with UC Berkeley guidelines for campus operations.
