Oekolos Productions presents: THE DECAMERON - LAST 4 SHOWS: 6/6, 6/7, 6/8, 6/9

All Shows 7:30 doors to immersive Oekolos and 8:30 stories. 
More info:

We have been incubating a project of EPIC proportions!

4 MORE DAYS! Dozens of artists and performers....ONE HUNDRED unique stories!
The Decameron will transform the Fort Mason Firehouse into The Oekolos, a post-disaster enclave where artists, actors, dancers, and aerialists from the Bay Area and Europe have taken refuge from the chaos beyond the walls. For ten nights, we will open our gates to the outside world and share our stories in a Festival featuring art, dance, theater, music, poetry, circus arts and more. Join us for this banquet of human expression! 

This is an immersive, one of a kind event: a concept-driven contemporary re-imagining of a historical fiction: Giovanni Bocaddio's Il Decamerone. 

We, the Citizens of the Oekolos, welcome you to enter our home, a place of refuge, a creative eden in the face of dark times. 

This project was conceived by Karl Gillick and Marije Nie.  Check out the website for our team of awesome and incredible artists! 

Each night will be different and feature an after-event celebration in the creative safe haven of Oekolos! 

Please purchase your tickets now, plan to come with friends and support this labor or love and inspiration! This is a highly collaborative project and an immersive artistic-performance environment. 

BUY TICKETS NOW to the night of your choice. Certain nights will sell out quickly.:

Burning Man 2013 Desert Arts Preview - Annual Artist Lecture Series

Friday, June 14, 2013
6:00pm-8:25pm (Speakers begin at 6:05pm SHARP!)

FREE admission!

At the Koret Auditorium in de Young Museum

Venue graciously provided by: de Young Museum
50 Hagiwara Tea Garden Dr, Golden Gate Park
San Francisco
(415) 750-3600 for museum info

Come early to enjoy the museum and take your seat in the Koret Auditorium at 6pm.

This is our very popular annual artist lecture series, where you get a sneak preview of some of the many notable art projects in progress right now for Burning Man 2013. You'll hear from artists who are creating revolutionary works of art, often in radically collaborative ways. Some have been creating work for the inhospitable tabula rasa of the Black Rock Desert in Nevada for many years and will be sharing war stories. This is also the perfect opportunity to learn how YOU can get involved and support these and other artists at the Burning Man event and year-round—as we increasingly seek to place interactive, collaborative and community-generating works of art in cities around the world!

Each speaker will have approximately 10 minutes, so please arrive on time. This event is free and part of the free Friday Nights at the de Young series.

Also arrive early at the de Young and enjoy Urbanauts, a wonderful artist collaboration between Sean Orlando and Rebar, hosted by the de Young and supported by the Black Rock Arts Foundation and the James Irvine Foundation.

If you can't make it, look up Burning Man art projects at the link below and directly contact these and other artists/projects as you feel inspired. Get involved and help make the art you wish to see in the world!

Reno Art Mob - a showcase of Reno artists & performers

Hyde Spot, 125 Hyde St., San Francisco, 6pm to 2am., Sat., June 15th, , 2013, $10

Hey Bay Area art fans! It's a road trip without the road! A core contingent of Reno's creative community is coming to San Francisco! Join Reno Art Mob, an ever-growing band of brash, buoyant artists (20 strong, morphing like amoebas and propagating like bunnies) for a one-night extravaganza, of art, entertainment, and general mayhem, Reno-style.

Reno is a veritable powder factory of creative output, and we're fixing to show you what we've got, from neon to knitting, hard-boiled portraits to velvety-royal costume finery, and just about everything in between. Come see!

While your eyeballs and eardrums feast on all this fabulousness, you'll also be helping International Arts Megacrew raise funds for the Control Tower, a very cool Burning Man project that unites numerous crews from around the country under one shining banner 

Hope to see you there!

Burning Man Flambe Lounge: Carnival of Cults!

Saturday, June 15th, 2013

9pm to 3:30am

At The CULTure Factory, 525 Harrison St, San Francisco, a 21+ over venue

$20 Admission

CARNIVAL OF CULTS Theme: Some wonder if Burning Man is a cult. If we are, then we are a DIY cult where members are encouraged to think for themselves and wash their own brains!  For this evening we invite you to create your own imaginative, playful, satiric, retro-absurd or future envisioning cults. We encourage you to dress and act the part, create midway games, processional groups and bizarre rituals to inspire followers to join you.

Bring your cult of personality and beliefs to life in a collaborative and creative manner. You might create a roving theme camp cult of pious platypi seeking to recruit new members for its art colony. Perhaps you are a closet alien cult leader on a galactic campaign to save the Cosmos! Prepare YOUR message and indoctrination ritual! We welcome your creative and collaborative interpretations of this playful and poignant theme—whether you are a cult of one or many. It’s up to you!

Performers, Camps, and MORE!!

AIRsmith, Bounce Camp, Burning Man Project, KSA Candyland, Disco Knights, DJ Zero One, Fou Fou Ha, Gamelan X, Michelangelo, Nick Black, Noaccordion, Tazii, and MANY MORE!!

Connect with your friends on our Facebook event

Artists, theme camps, performers and DJs wanting to participate in this event-ing of community and creativity should email
