People Like Me 2005:

The 11th season of People Like Me presents a curious character on a quest to find his lost memory. Along the way he stumbles upon riddles of science such as gravity, light and shadow, and DNA! Our hero finds himself in a fanciful world of imagination and shadows, created by ShadowLight Productions, where everything is relative and relatives are everywhere!

The Balinese Monkey King from Gamelan Sekar Jaya weaves the way through past and present helping him search for his roots. Along the way he encounters ancient rhythms from the traditional Korean drum dances of Ong Dance Company, and meets the humorous Argentine tango dancers, Marcelo Solis and Romina Hahn. Community and village life embrace him as Lowiczanie Polish Folk Ensemble presents a lively dance from the mountains of Eastern Europe. Finally he makes sense of his own origins when the storytelling griots Djialy Kunda Kouyate fill in the missing historical pieces with their lyrical singing and explosive dancing. In this voyage, our hero discovers the beauty of diversity, the importance of cultural traditions, and the connections between peoples and their expressions around the globe.

This year's lineup is presented in an engaging, educational and interactive one-hour performance. The theater experience and its supporting curriculum material present a multidisciplinary and multicultural approach to meeting recommended State Content Standards for Visual and Performing Arts, History, and Social Science, and Science, and expose children to the rich diversity of performing artists living right here in Northern California.
