Level5 is a live action role playing performance piece by Brody Condon, based on the Bay Area self actualization seminars of the 1970’s. Condon’s work draws together disparate communities – performative folk artists, performance artists, and practioners of experimental theater – to explore the construction of the self. In this two day participatory piece, fifty players will transform via the characters, or alibis, that they assume.
Visitors are welcomed to watch Level5live-streamed video to the Billy Wilder Theater on Saturday and Sunday from 1-5pm.
This week the clarinet duo, James Sullivan and Brian Walsh, will play new compositions commissioned especially for the Festival.

All works have been commissioned for this festival and are under two minutes in length. Concerts are every Saturday from August through November from 1:00 to 4:00pm at the Hammer Museum starting on August 7. This festival is curated by Chris Kallmyer.
