Last chance to see Transference at Studio 23!
Visual and Performance Art Victor Mavedzenge.  

Victor is lead to communicate with his audience by an inner intuitive guide along with energy he picks up from the crowd around him.

A mix of humor and poetry are woven together with intimate stories from his past delivered as if you are sitting around a table with family and friends, speaking frankly with little to no inhibition.

Stories about his father, his family, brief meaningful and random encounters with strangers fuel the heart of the message. His country Zimbabwe, politics, time spent in London and his art are just a few of the abstract concepts prompting the heart-felt connection given to his audience.  Sneak Peek Video Clip.

I liken it to imagining what it would have been like to be in the presence of Van Gogh, Dali, Picasso or one of the greats clearly articulating the pain, joy, angst and passions that they live with and are able to transfer into creating their work. ‘Transference’ is a unique experience in Alameda that you won’t want to miss.  More about Victor

Cost: FREE
Suggested Donation: $5-$10
