CSUEB Inclusive Performance Festival
April 13 @ 2:30 pm - 4:10 pm
The Festival runs from Tue, April 6– Sat, May 8.
The Cal State East Bay Department of Theatre and Dance is collaborating with Dandelion Dancetheater and a wildly diverse group of artists, activists, free-thinkers, and creative rabble-rousers to launch the first annual Inclusive Performance Festival (IPF) throughout April/May 2021. The IPF is a grass-roots, DIY, radically inclusive, process-oriented festival that is experimenting with sharing performance in accessible, relevant, life-affirming, and innovative ways to meet the needs of many intersecting communities in this new era for the arts.
Planned collectively by a council of Queer, BIPOC, Autistic, Disabled, Jewish, Neurodivergent, Fat, Young, Elder, Outsider, and uncategorizable artists, the festival will present virtual, in-person, and hybrid dance, music, theatre, drag, ritual, educational, and participatory performances, discussions, workshops, ceremonies, and more.
IPF is directed by Eric Kupers in collaboration with a planning council of event organizers, and will feature:
the Wandering Ensemble,
Shapes and Shades Dance Company
Emmaly Wiederholt & Tonya Rivera
Dancing Earth Creations
Us in the U.S.
the CSUEB Pilipinx American Student Association
