"You won't find a more spectacular venue for live theater than
Cal Shakes' Bruns Amphitheater in the Orinda hills." —Diablo Magazine


About the Triangle Lab: The Triangle Lab is Cal Shakes’ research and development wing, where we experiment with ways to bring together theaters, artists, and communities to ignite change. We believe that through deep collaboration artists and community members can lift up each other’s work—starting conversation, sharing stories, bridging difference, and activating deeper civic participation. Through our experiments we are exploring how to integrate the arts more deeply into community life, investigating what happens when the powerful tools of theater artists are mobilized and integrated into broader civic dialogue. We are also investigating how to activate our Bruns performance space as a platform for creative exchange and a welcoming space for more different people.
