Island City Waterways: Uprooted is the 3rd in a series of site-specific performances of dance, theater and music, that celebrate the history of Alameda’s unique waterfront. Uprooted will tell the story of Alameda Point, from the rise of civilian flight, to a Naval Air Station that staged four wars, to land being repurposed to fill the promise of a community’s future.
Along the way audiences will be invited to attend a 1930’s air race of pilots from the early days of aviation, participate in a swing dance lesson and experience a finale, with the full cast of performers including 9 taiko drummers, that honors the resilience of the human spirit.
Saturday and Sunday, May 21 & 22, 2022
Four performances each day at 10:00am, 11:45am, 1:30pm and 3:15pm

Audiences join a cast of 35 actors, dancers, and musicians including 13th Floor, ODC/Dance, Akira Tana Trio, and Maze Daiko for a 75-minute guided, immersive performance. The journey will take guests on a roving adventure from the wings of peace to the wings of war, from boot camp to WWII internment camp, and from an interactive swing lesson to an 18-piece taiko finale.
