About The Event

This is Bay Area Rising's fourth only-in-Oakland community performance ritual in conjunction with VDay's One Billion Rising movement! Building off of OBR's 2015 theme of "Revolution" ,'Evolution' says that -we are ready to move faster, stronger, and more confidently toward a world without violence. We follow the leadership of women in the Congo and elsewhere who are healing themselves and conjuring strong communities through the medicine of drum and dance. World-class local performers and ritualists--gina Breedlove, Destiny Arts, Starhawk, Luisah Teish, Fat Chance Belly Dance, and many others--gather in a spiritual space to offer music, dance, spoken word, inspiration, dance to 'Break the Chain' and to raise funds for international and local organizations.
