Contribute the Songs of Your California!

The Triangle Lab is kicking off its Califas Festival (the culminating event of the Califas project) with the Opening Ceremony at Intersection for the Arts on October 2nd. In addition to viewing art, watching performances, and listening to speakers, we are having numerous interactive stations for attendees to participate in. One of these stations is a playlist-making-station, where we are asking people to contribute songs that make up their California. We are inviting you to contribute to a playlist now–before the Festival even opens–to start up the Califas momentum!
It couldn’t be easier to contribute to this project! Just follow the link, sign in using the login info below, search for the song you want, and add it to the linked playlist titled Public Califas Playlist.

What’s Your Tale?

Patricia McGregor’s magical, family-friendly production of Shakespeare’s A Winter’s Tale begins previews tomorrow, culminating the 2013 Cal Shakes season with a profusion of music, movement, miracles—and Triangle Lab activities.

Visit the memory wall to collect an object and tell us what memory it evokes.

Pick up song lyrics at the Triangle Lab activity sign (also inserted in your show program) so you can sing along during the performance.

Stop on the entrance path to see video of spoken-word performances by RAW (Richmond Artists with Talent), part of a Triangle Lab workshop exploring the impact of loss and healing through art.

On October 1 and 11, one hour prior to the performance, join storytellers from The Shout—led by Rami Margron—in the Grove Talk Grove to hear and share stories about faith and forgiveness.


Share your Califas story

What makes you yearn for home? What are your dreams of a homeland? How does love journey across boundaries?

We invite you to participate in Califas: Roadside Interactions by sharing your story of a journey home—in words or pictures—by using the hashtag #Califas on Twitter or Instagram, or posting to the Triangle Lab’s Facebook page.
