On Tuesday, June 8, Cal Performances’ board of trustees current co-chairs Susan L. Graham and Helen Meyer, and executive and artistic director Jeremy Geffen, announced the organization’s 2021–22 season, a robust and expansive series of more than 70 dance, theater, and music performances that marks the return to live, in-person performing arts presentations after COVID-19 shuttered venues in the spring of 2020. A new season of Cal Performances’ Illuminations programming explores the timely topic of “Place and Displacement” through five mainstage performances, including three West Coast premieres and a series of programs that connect the work of world-class artists to the academic and intellectual life of the UC Berkeley campus. Singer, composer, activist, and humanitarian Angélique Kidjo joins Cal Performances as the organization’s first season-long artist-in-residence, visiting for two performances and participating in collaborations with students, faculty, and campus partners, plus a full slate of public engagement activities.
