The Oakland series premieres. Follow the show as it evolves through a quarterly series of four cycles, each responding to current issues of local concern. No show will be the exactly the same as any other. Produced by Lower Bottom Playaz

Conceived as a quarterly series, the Oakland cycles are designed to be embedded in an existing community with a past and a future. As a series, the project can reach beyond a single performance or event. Each cycle, the text and images will evolve to reflect current issues of local concern. It can grow with the community. 

Oakland is one of the most diverse communities in the United States. It has a rich history of creativity, innovation, fortitude, and conflict. It is where both the Black Panthers and #BlackLivesMatter began. It is also undergoing rapid change with new residents coming in, enticed by the creative energy, but often unaware of Oakland's history or the scale of displacement of current residents.
