Guest: Vero Maynez
Romeo y Juliet is a bilingual adaptation of the enduring Shakespeare classic. CalShakes’ anticipated production will finally see a stage (and an audience) two years after it was originally scheduled for 2020 and the CalShakes season was cancelled.
David talks with Vero Maynez (“Juliet”) about this latest production, and how the English and Spanish text woven into the production brings a new facet to this timeless story.

Janet Koike / Rhythmix Founder and Artistic Director
Kimi Okada / ODC Associate Choreographer
Follow the journey “from the wings of peace to the wings of war and from boot camp to internment camp” (Janet Koike). This program honors those who fought for their land and life of promise, while having to endure the fallout of fear and political targeting. All right in our backyard in Alameda.
This program draws upon a collection of letters belonging to Kimi Okada. While confined to a holding camp outside of Sacramento, Okada’s mother saved onionskin carbon copies of every letter she wrote, detailing her observations and daily life – offering a window into an infamous time in history.
Tune in as David explores this program with Koike and Okada.
