“Rocked By Women” rocks Oakland May 9 & 10
Rocked by Women is a multimedia dance theatre performance in Oakland that celebrates women’s music and its influence over nearly half a century — music by the likes of Cris Williamson, Holly Near and Ani DiFranco that helped Rocked by Women creator and choreographer Sarah Bush and many other lesbians come out. Eric Jansen speaks with her and director Becca Wolff, and they play music from the production.
