Summer CSUEB Theatre-Dance programs
Submitted By Diane Daniel
A two-part series of performances by Bay Area dance companies led off Cal State East Bay's summertime Theatre and Dance department offerings; entertainment continues with William Shakespeare's "As You Like It" and two student artist programs, all at the Studio Theatre on the Hayward campus.
Thao Nguyen, who likes to say that the secret to keeping your family happy is keeping your other family a secret, will present her solo story of conflict between what her parents want, her Queer friends want, and she wants, August 1 at 8 p.m.
Alumna Dawn Monique Williams will direct "As You Like It" August 10, 11, 17 and 18 at 8 p.m., and August 19 at 2 p.m. The Shakespeare classic deals with betrayal, cross-dressing, romance, and wrestling. The lean adaptation will be romantic and infused with dance.
A student artist series will complete the summer programs. Recital A at 4 p.m. August 22 will present performance art on the subject of sex, race, and body politics. Recital B, at noon August 29, will be an oral interpretation of articulating identity.
The price of "As You Like It" will be $15, $10, and $5, and admission for the student series will be $1 online, free at the door for CSUEB students, and $3 for all others. There will be limited seating for all of the summer performances.
