This Friday, March 2, the ASUC will be hosting “Perspectives” from 7 to 10 p.m. in Zellerbach Hall. What is this, “Perspectives” you ask?
“It’s a multicultural showcase which brings together groups from various communities on our campus,” said junior and Chief of Staff, Mia Hodge, who is helping put together the event. “Sixteen groups will be performing including the Golden Overtones, Cal Jazz band, Jericho, Cal Slam and the Human Journal. Also performing is an assortment of a cappella and dance groups including Azaad, Dil Se and For Christ’s Sake.”
Basically, we’re getting that it’s a talent show like we used to have in the good old days, only a bit more diversified.
Coordinators expect it to be a high energy evening as performing groups vary in talents from poetry reading to dance to comedy. Additionally, the showcase has involved local schools and have received visual representations of what Berkeley means to these local students.
Hodge continued, “It’s important for us now more than ever to recognize the diversity at Cal. We all come from different backgrounds and we should come together to celebrate the diversity as one piece.”
Tickets are $5.
