Love & Pride | Studio Production | Cast List
Written by TDPS student Sy Bocalbos Jordan
Co-directed by Sy Bocalbos Jordan & Lila Mullins
Rehearsals 06 February – 15 March
Performances March 16 – 19 // Room 7 // Zellerbach Hall
LOVE & PRIDE is an innovative new musical about identity and dialogue. It tells the stories of people who identify at different points along the spectrums of sex, gender and sexuality, and the conflicts that arise within themselves and their relationships, due to those identities. This play aims to explore these issues intelligently, respectfully, and artfully – through the power of bold politics and moving songs.
Memoria Del Silencio… | Workshop | Cast List
Written by TDPS Student Linda Girón
Rehearsals 30 January – 21 February
Performances February 22, 23 // Z Studio // Zellerbach Hall
MEMORIA DEL SILENCIO EN EL PAÍS DE LA ETERNA PRIMAVERA is an original play that explores the relationship between memory, trauma and how these wounds can leave a mark that flows deeper than blood. Set in the land of eternal spring, in a town where the population of ghosts outnumber the living, nearby villages are disappearing and roses grow larger than cattle; la familia Noguera face the boundaries of love when tested by the realities of life— aging, war and illness.
The Othello Project | Workshop | Cast List
Written by TDPS Student Madison Wackerman
Rehearsals 27 February – 21 March
Performances March 22, 23 // Z Studio // Zellerbach Hall
The Othello Project will be a devised piece consisting of student experiences, references to the text, and character investigation to examine harmful societal tropes in the white patriarchy in Shakespeare’s Othello that persist today. This piece will use personal accounts to contextualize Shakespeare’s “classic” play in Contemporary America and draw parallels to the Black Lives Matter Movement. This project will not be a line-by-line adaptation, but rather a collaborative investigative piece to create a conversation dismantling the idea of a “post-racial” America.

Polaroid Stories | • Cast List •
Written by Naomi Iizuka
Directed by Margo Hall
On Stage March 3-12 // The Playhouse @ Zellerbach Hall
Based on real life stories of street kids, and drawing from Ovid’s Metamorphoses myths, Naomi Iizuka’s Polaroid Stories blends poetry and profanity to explore how young people pushed to the edge of society come to understand their lives amid anger, love both lost and found, violence, homelessness, ambition, and addiction.
Berkeley Dance Project 2017 | • Cast List •
Featuring choreography by Krista DeNio and James Graham
On Stage April 20-29, 2017 // The Playhouse @ Zellerbach Hall
Berkeley Dance Project 2017, inspired by the theme “Digging Deep,” offers an evening of dance works exploring how we communicate with each other as humans and the deeply intertwined ways these processes are mirrored in our relationships with the non-human world that surrounds us.
BDP 2017 will feature a new piece of ensemble devised dance theater by Krista DeNio. Titled Network, the piece incorporates multi-disciplinary research and experiential investigation into the idea of networks of communications among cells—in bodies, in prisons, and in plants. The piece considers our incredible abilities (plant and human) to survive and thrive, even in tiny spaces and constrained realities.
Continuing these themes of communication and survival, choreographer James Graham explores the concepts of earth, fire, air, and water. Titled For Elements, the piece looks at our human relationships to these elements. Both pieces explore multiple processes of communication: verbal, non-verbal, felt, visual, and sensed, revealing the deep layers of connection we have to each other and our world. Ultimately “Digging Deep” asks: What sustains us? What destroys us? What makes us feel connected while we are alive?
