Events Around the Bay

Island City Waterways at Alameda Point 

May 21 & 22, 2022

With four free performances each day of the fabulous shows at the Alameda Point which served as an airport for the Pan Am China Clippers in the 1920s, became a naval air station that staged four wars, and is now being repurposed for the future.

A cast of 35 performers will lead audiences on an easy stroll from one performance site to another performance site, taking them on a journey from the wings of peace to the wings of war and from boot camp to WWII internment camp. Along the way, audiences are invited to attend a 1930’s air race, participate in a swing dance lesson, and experience an 18-piece taiko ensemble honoring the resilience of the human spirit.

For its contribution to the program, ODC/Dance has drawn upon a collection of letters belonging to ODC Associate Choreographer Kimi Okada whose parents were forcibly relocated to an internment camp in 1942 following Executive Order 9066. Presented by Rhythmix Cultural Works in partnership with the City of Alameda, the production is a highlight of Rhythmix Cultural Works’ yearlong 15th anniversary celebration. Since opening its doors in 2007, the community-based arts facility has increasingly made it a centerpiece of its mission to illuminate the island’s unique culture and history with signature events that bring the arts into Alameda’s streets and park. This is definitely a Bay Area event not to be missed in order to thrill your zest for the cultural and historic enrichment.
