“Flamenco!”

OC Live is on the dance floor with “Flamenco!” music and dance. Join us Wednesday, October 5th at 6pm in the beautiful Oxnard College Performing Arts Building (PAB). Celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month with Flamenco! The passionate strumming of guitars, the thundering rhythms created by dancers' feet striking the stage — this is Flamenco in its pure essence. Bring your flowers, fans and castanets and get ready to yell "Olé!" as Wendy Castellanos-Wolf and the Flamenco805 dancers set the stage on fire with their entrancing movements and heart-wrenching expression.

“Signing Black in America” Film Screening with Discussion to Follow

Join OC Live for “Signing Black in America” film screening and discussion to follow with Dr. Joseph Hill on Wednesday, September 28th, from 6pm - 7:30pm in the Oxnard College Performing Arts Building (PAB). Just like spoken languages, sign languages have dialects. Black ASL is the unique dialect of American Sign Language (ASL) that developed within historically segregated African American Deaf communities. Largely unknown to outsiders, Black ASL has become a symbol of solidarity and a vital part of identity within the Black Deaf community. This is a FREE event which includes watching the film and then participating in a discussion and Q&A with Dr. Hill via Zoom.
