More Info:

Oakland Winter Live brings a cutting edge showcase a few of the Bay Areas best contemporary music, dance, theatre, and video artists together for a series of short performance works, including internationally acclaimed theatre artist from Johannesburg, Tony Miyambo performing Kafkas Red Peter with an eye towards the black experience in America. Dont miss the cinematic environment of a monumental screen in the art deco theatre at the OACC.

Six pieces integrating music, dance, theatre with video will be presented December, 8 & 9th 2017. These works are created by some particularly accomplished Artists and performers in the Bay Area now. Wild Projects productions presents two nights two unique programs that will transform the newly reinvigorated Oakland Asian Cultural Center, in Oaklands Chinatown. This intersection of contemporary music, dance, theatre, with video strikes Oaklands evolving downtown like a moonlit epiphany, flickering on the elegant deco stage at OACC. The beauty of the stage is its wood floor and its 300 unfixed seats that will be arranged for these immersive performances. Oakland as a site for quality performance in Chinatown is coming into its own. These artists tackle social justice, sexuality, coming of age without parents, fragile nature and deep listening in refreshing and challenging ways. Oakland Winter Live marks a new sophisticated moment in Oaklands downtown cultural milieu.

The choice of these artists was based on their quality of work and their ability to integrate interdisciplinary approaches in live performance works. I wanted to have a variety of ensembles approaching this work from varied points of view. I wanted to attract a diverse audience, a broader demographic, to create an event where veteran performers were integrating with younger ones. I also wanted to use the space of the what seems to sometimes be called an auditorium and transform the space into a theatre.
