Shapeshifters Cinema

Shapeshifters Cinema, 567 5th Street , Oakland

Musician and seeker Suki O’Kane returns to Shapeshifters to enact 10,000 things, a score for durational performance, to mark the fall equinox. The piece starts 10,000 seconds before, and lasts a minimum of 10,000 seconds after the equinox itself, which will be observable at 6:03pm Pacific Daylight Time. Expect ritual acts of body, speech and mind, walking meditation, live cinema, durational sound, food, sunset, civil twilight, and the setting of a waning crescent moon. The show starts early at 6pm (the equinox arrives at 6:03pm) with a solo set from Ernesto Diaz-Infante, complementary autumnal food and drink at dark o'clock, and at 8pm two sets: the first Phoebe Tooke leading a visual conduction for an improvising ensemble comprised of Dyemark, Wayne Grim, Jacob Felix Heule, Suki O’Kane, Adria Otte, and special guests; the second reconvenes the artists from the 2022 spring equinox realization of the 10,000 things score enacted on the back deck of Shapeshifters with Alfonso Alvarez, Dyemark, Suki O’Kane, and special guests. Cost: $10
