BHS African American Studies Department Presents Carnival - A celebration of
our diversity; fusing dance, theater, music, and rap in an exciting evening
of high energy, good fun for the entire family. The performance is a
collaboration with Berkeley High School's great artistic minds (Linda Carr,
Lauren Benjamin, Miss Betty, and Mama Naomi Washington-Diouf) combining
modern, Aztec, hip hop, African, fusion, Praise, Haitian, Persian, soca and
visuals to help you join the party. So expect to see a carnival happening
with dancers parading down the aisles with masks, bright costumes, stilt
walkers, skaters, and more. Watch students bring the flavor of the marching
band with Southern style stepping.

Theater at 1980 Allston Way @ Martin Luther King in the beautiful City of
Berkeley, CA 94704. Tickets are $12 for reserved; $8 for general; $5 for
