Island City Waterways: Uprooted
May 21-22, 2022
Alameda Point Waterfront Park
Island City Waterways: Uprooted is the 3rd in a series of site-specific performances of dance, theater and music, that celebrate the history of Alameda’s unique waterfront. Uprooted will tell the story of Alameda Point, from the rise of civilian flight, to a Naval Air Station that staged four wars, to land being repurposed to fill the promise of a community’s future.
ODC/Dance joins a cast of 35 actors, dancers, and musicians including 13th Floor, Akira Tana Trio, and Maze Daiko, will lead audiences on an easy stroll around Alameda Point’s West Mall Square for a 75-minute immersive performance that will take them on a journey from the wings of peace to the wings of war and from boot camp to WWII internment camp.
Four performances each day at 10am, 11:45am, 1:30pm, and 3:15pm
