It is a new season, and the L@TE: Friday Nights at the Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive (BAM/PFA) returns with new shows in the coming months.
Bringing the month of February to a close is The Possible Opening Ceremony. Beginning at 7:30pm on February 28th, this program brings both a culmination of the first wave of actions, with a moment to draw together things that have yet to come. The artists featured in this program will orchestrate a ceremony filled with studio production, sound, and movement, while patrons are encouraged to make beeswax, candles and masks, and then join in the Night Parade.

Then as February turns into March, L@TE: Friday Nights will feature two shows for the month. First up is TURF Inc. Presents Turf Dance Battle, featuring the Mekanix on March 7th at 5:00pm. It is a an all-style dance tournament, featuring the best of Bay Area’s turf dancing, and hosted by Johnny5 of the Oakland-based dance crew TurF Feinz, a founder of Turf Inc, an organization focusing on building community through dance battles as an act of unity. Also included is The Mekanix, considered to be the Oakland godfathers of hip-hop production, known for their work with the Bay Area’s hip-hop icons including Mac Dre and E40. The program will conclude with an all-out open-circle dance-off.

Finally on March 14th at 7:30pm, BAMPFA will feature celebrated experimental singer, composer, and sound artist Joan La Barbara. She will be presenting her Circular Song, a piece she composed back in 1976, when BAMPFA was known as the University Art Museum. It will be recreated for this event, as part of a rare program of innovative and beautiful vocal compositions, plus La Barbara will also be singing her recent works Solitary Journeys of the Mind (2011) and Windows (2013).

And of course, doors open at 5 p.m., with a DJ at 6:30. Tickets are $7 for the TURF Inc. and Joan La Barbara events, while The Possible Opening Ceremony is free.
