The entire stage is filled with an elaborate and meticulously rendered scale model of buildings, train tracks, and thousands of miniature figurines, which are artfully manipulated by Dutch visual and performing artists Pauline Kalker, Arléne Hoornweg and Herman Helle, as they recreate a miniature depiction of the place where Kalker’s grandfather spent his final days: Auschwitz.
The group exhibition Only the morning bird treasures the flower garden, which takes its title from a poem by 14th century Persian poet Hafiz, includes photographs, videos, and other works by more than twenty Iranian artists on the theme of flowers.
Nine New Contemporary Performance Projects Given Residency Support to Premiere at the 16th Annual New Original Works Festival
REDCAT's Annual New Original Works Festival transforms REDCAT into a summer laboratory premiering new contemporary dance, theater, music and multimedia performances. This year's festival launches nine new works by Los Angeles emerging and mid-career artists who are re-defining the boundaries of contemporary performance to invent hybrid artistic disciplines, re-imagine traditions and confront urgent issues. All artistic teams receive free rehearsal space, technical support, and artist fees.
Each of the three weekends features a triple bill of three premieres in a shared evening. Each program is premiered on Thursday evening and repeated Friday and Saturday evenings at 8:30 pm.
