Announcing our fall show Un-Changing Nature premiering October 25-27 at The Flight Deck in Oakland’s lively Uptown theater district. We are so excited to share this work with you, and we need your help! We’ve launched a crowd-funding campaign to raise $4,000 August 11th to meet our production costs. Check out the rewards and donate here!
Human and environmental impact
Un-Changing Nature collects, under one roof, five rarely seen SBDP site-inspired works. These diverse pieces explore how humans impact the environment and how it in turn, impacts us. Watch our new video featuring these original pieces in the wild.
Un-Changing Nature celebrates the spiritual impact of wilderness on our lives. It invites audiences to reflect on both the power we have to change the environment and our vulnerability in the truth of climate change. The dances are designed to reflect back to audiences their individual and collective power in the face of challenges and adversity.
Why do we need this money from you now?
SBDP’s funding comes from a variety of sources. Individual donations make up a large part of our annual income. Meeting the funding goal with this campaign is key to balancing our budget and ensuring that we have the resources to create a professional, high-quality production and compensate our performers and theater team at the level they deserve.
By donating or sharing this campaign, you are championing artists and local economies and saying YES to the power of live performance as a means of bringing people together. We are buoyed by the support of our longtime and ever-expanding community.
