CARe and Cal Performances Announce Partnership

Initial collaboration supports events around the March 3 performance of Akram Khan's XENOS

Berkeley, CA - February 12, 2019 - The GTU's Center for the Arts & Religion (CARe) is excited to announce a new partnership with Cal Performances at the University of California, Berkeley. As an initial step in this collaboration, CARe and Cal Performances are offering a limited number of free tickets to the March 3 performance of dancer/choreographer Akram Khan's XENOS to GTU consortial students and CARe members, and providing additional programming in support of the event. The enhanced programming around Khan’s XENOS is a starting point for future collaboration between CARe and Cal Performances, which will allow CARe to offer a rich program of performing arts to the GTU community. 

For the initial campaign surrounding the March 3 performance of XENOS, CARe and Cal Performances have developed a number of events to guide discussion and appreciation of the piece. Join us at the four events, held over the weekend of March 2-4.
