REDCAT’s quarterly program of new works and works-in-progress highlights new forms of dance, theater, music and multimedia performance in a wide-ranging evening that celebrates the vitality of LA’s artists making work for the stage.
Origin of the Alimonies is a multidisciplinary opera by Hunter Hunt-Hendrix, the founder of Liturgy, the “transcendental black metal” band which The New York Times praised as “hungry for other musical languages, devouring them and putting them to work.”
Following its world premiere at the Berlinale and its U.S. premiere at Art of the Real, Breathless Animals constantly surprises and unsettles the viewer by keeping the titular animals off-screen—within the cadence of the speaker’s nonlinear memory.
Coinciding with the centenary of Chavela Vargas, the unforgettable voice of La Llorona, Los Angeles-based artist Dorian Wood honors Chavela with Xavela Lux Aeterna, a riveting personal tribute with original compositions and folk music from Costa Rica.
The Gallery at REDCAT presents Adelita Husni Bey: CHIRON, an exhibition that includes the West Coast premiere of Husni Bey’s most recent film and installation Chiron (2019), commissioned and premiered by the New Museum in January 2019.
