Crazy radicals. Just unveiled by Cal Performances Executive and Artistic Director Matías Tarnopolsky, Berkeley RADICAL is a new framework to cultivate public artistic literacy and create cultural access for diverse future audiences in the context of the digital age and transitional generations. Berkeley RADICAL is a platform on which Cal Performances artists will operate within and beyond its home, UC Berkeley, and instigate substantive interactivity between Cal Performances’ commissioning, creation, and presentation, University learning and scholarship, and Bay Area public learning across a wide age range. Berkeley RADICAL at Cal Performances will contribute to determining a future for the performing arts—broad dissemination of the process and results in contemporary digital forms will be key to this goal. Watch for Cal Performances content on iTunes with a dedicated destination ( featuring exclusive Berkeley RADICAL podcasts, and a selection of music from artists in concert at Cal Performances.
