Cal Performances' groundbreaking Berkeley RADICAL initiative embraces Cal Performances' unique place at the heart of UC Berkeley, the Bay Area and beyond. Through adventurous and relevant residency-based programming; dynamic new approaches to audience development; the nurturing of artistic literacy; and active and creative engagement with our world-class university community, we are committed to provide audiences with new and unexpected ways to engage and connect with the performing arts.

Berkeley Radical Will Return In 2020-21

Cal Performances plans to spend the 2019–20 season refreshing and re-energizing Berkeley RADICAL, intending to relaunch the program in 2020–21. Future efforts promise to continue to make use of the singular opportunities for artistic and academic exploration afforded to us as part of one of the world’s greatest public universities. Meanwhile, during the 2019–20 season, we will continue to offer a wide variety of public engagement and artistic literacy opportunities designed to bring audiences into closer contact with the diverse talent and ideas featured on our stages.
