Shapeshifters Cinema: Experimental Film & Music | Oakland

Shapeshifters Cinema is a monthly series featuring experimental filmmakers and video artists presenting moving image work live with accompaniment from musicians and sound artists.

Shapeshifters takes place the second Sunday of every month, from 8 to 9 pm (unless otherwise noted) at Temescal Art Center in North Oakland. Shows are free. Shapeshifters is curated by Gilbert Guerrero and Kathleen Quillian.

Cyrus Tabar is a multidisciplinary artist primarily working with motion picture and sound. He often blends a multitude of formats from 16mm found footage and digital processing to tape based musical compositions and live manipulated field recordings. Science fiction novels often influence his work, which often revolves around near-future space exploration, planetary phenomena, and time travel. With a background in immersive installation art using pure light and sound as formal mediums, Cyrus blends the experiential nature of installation with the temporal facet of performance. He will be performing past works Tempus Fluxus, Optica, The Spider and The Fly, and Terraforma in addition to his latest piece made exclusively for Shapeshifters dealing with lost identity and the path to redefine it.
