2pm Racial Equity Community Engagement Session with Tammy Johnson
3pm Performances and reception

The Anastasio Project is a multidisciplinary, mobile public performance that kickstarts an investigation of race relations, state brutality and border violence. Navarrete x Kajiyama Dance Theater will create The Anastasio Project in collaboration with EastSide Arts Alliance muralist Leslie Lopez and video artist Steven Sanchez, as well as a cast of youth and adults from East Oakland and San Francisco. The work includes stories from the East Oakland community, a sound and video system on wheels, dance, theater, murals, and a topic that is relevant to all of us!

We've been working really hard with our collaborators, and now we need your help! We've been awarded an $8,000 matching grant from the East Bay Community Foundation. But we will only receive the funds if we can raise $8,000 in individual donations! Will you help us reach our goal? No donation is too small, and all funds will be used to pay artist and designer fees as well as production costs for our September 2014 production of The Anastasio Project at EastSide Arts Alliance as well as community performances throughout Winter and Spring 2015.

Please join us for a brief Racial Equity Training Community Engagement session by Tammy Johnson followed by performances and a reception with finger food and drinks. Join us for all or part of the afternoon to find out more about the project.

Featuring Mishel Ramos, Dajuan Carter-Woodard, Hector Torres, Kevin Akhidenor, Jose Navarrete & Debby Kajiyama.
