Event description
An immersive experience that merges contemporary performance and the ancient art of storytelling.

About this event

SPACES is a site-specific participatory work, created and performed with the local community that gives this place its life and identity. In Oakland, local residents and artists work together to create a series of performances that ultimately give a glimpse into Oakland, one of the most vibrant and culturally diverse cities in the US.

Performed at the beautiful Oakland City Hall and Frank H. Ogawa Plaza, participants are invited to inhabit in a new way these symbols of government that have shaped today’s urban space and life.

Your Physical & Emotional Safety is Important!

SPACES isn't a "traditional" performance, but an experience that will require your full engagement: you walk, sit, stand, move, and possibly connect with friends and strangers in a pressure-free environment.

It has been a while since all of us have ventured out to experience live performance. That is why, in order for you to be and feel safe, our team is working closely with the Oakland City Hall staff to have the appropriate measures in place: the space is very large, we limit audience size to 80, and require that all audience members wear a mask. In addition, all of our artists and crew, and the vast majority of our storytellers are vaccinated. Artists and storytellers will only remove their masks when at a safe distance from the audience.

Guests will receive an email with an up to date protocol in the days prior to attending the performance.
