Saturday July 1st from 12pm to 7pm at Jack London Square. Come to see Turfin' VS. The World Dance Battle Festival (Part II) with Firehouse Art Collective's Tom Franco judging the competition.





The turf dancing phenomenon that started in Oakland’s inner city will take center stage at Jack London Square for the 2nd time this year on Saturday, July 1st, 2017 as part of an all-new event, dubbed Turfin vs. the World Dance Battle Festival (Part II) . A combination of boogaloo, mime, breakdance, footwork, house dance and storytelling, what started in the 1990s as an urban dance style performed on the streets of Oakland, has grown into a cultural movement. TURFinc, an Oakland-based company dedicated to creating positive changes in the community through dance, is introducing turfing to the masses and using the dance phenomenon to keep at-risk youth off the streets through classes, community performances and this 2nd dance battle at Jack London Square.

Turfin’ vs. the World Dance Battle Festival (Part II) will take place on Saturday, July 1st, from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. at Jack London Square, in Oakland. Free to attend, the event will fill the Oakland waterfront with turf dance battle competitions, performances by Johnny5's students, live music, dance workshops, local eats and vendors.

Upcoming Exhibition:
Sara Emsaki: Behind Closed Doors
Opening Reception July 8th 6PM-9PM

 

Totally Rad Gallery is presents a fantastic new exhibition by Oakalnd Artist Sara Emsaki. 

Iranian born-Oakland based artist, Sara Emsaki, works primarily in painting; re-appropriating images that target gender roles and their subsequent power dynamics. Her work is aesthetically influenced by Islamic geometry and Persian miniature painting.

"Women of Iran have been veiled, unveiled, and re-veiled as the country has gone through revolutions and regimes. The artwork produced during the Qajar dynasty era (1785-1925) depicts women in the intimate environment of the harem, intoxicated and eroticized. These paintings oddly contradicted Persia’s firmly Islamic society. Through the re-appropriation of these images, I visualize new scenarios and fantasies in which women play prohibited and unusual roles— engaging in sexual affairs with other females, holding weapons, and possessing super powers. As an Iranian woman who grew up with constrained liberties, it is empowering to recreate images that question the narratives that were once predominantly contrived by men."
- Sara Emsaki
