The Secrets of the Trees

This June, Athletic Playground will host the debut work from its first ever artist in residency.

Originally conceptualized as a circus and dance interpretation of the book, The Hidden Life of Trees by Peter Wohlleben, this work blossomed (so to speak) into an affirmation of our interdependence. Drawing inspiration from Standing Rock and other political actions, books like Blessed Unrest and Radical Ecology, as well as stories like "The Useless Tree" the performers have woven together a story of struggle and hope in a harrowing time.  Touching on themes of socialism, competition, set-back, and rebirth, this theatrical critique of capitalism will show you some things you can learn from trees.



Is this the show Caitlyn has been (shyly) talking about in class for months?


Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?

This show is suitable for all ages.  Impressionable minds encouraged.

What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?

Limited spaces in parking lot, ample street parking.  10 minute bus ride or 20 minute walk from MacArthur BART.

Can I volunteer for a free ticket?

 Absolutely!  Please contact Caitlyn via email or facebook to find out how you can help!
