Natalie will present a dance solo as a part of this event hosted by UC Berkeley at the beautiful Zellerbach Hall. And best of all the event is FREE!
In Caleidoscope, brief (approximately 2–4 minute) performances from the performing arts (music, theater, dance, film, creative writing, etc.) are juxtaposed back-to-back—without applause, announcements, or other interruptions—in a seamless, dramatically-conceived performance. Events occur throughout the hall: on stage, in the balconies, among the catwalks, in the aisles, and perhaps even in the lobby before or after the performance.
