New Original Works Festival

(Week Two)

"The Future is NOW--For the artists, in their restless journey to create new original works, the festival has become a base camp from which to launch. And for the audiences, it's become a unique home base at which to put their fingers on the pulse of cutting-edge contemporary performance."

--Los Angeles Times

Each summer REDCAT celebrates the vitality of Los Angeles' vibrant and growing community of artists making work for the stage. We transform our theater into an artist-driven creative laboratory where disciplines are challenged and blurred, traditions are re-imagined, and hybrid visions take hold.

This year's three-week festival launches nine new original works by Los Angeles dance, theater, music and multimedia performing artists. 

WEEK TWO, Aug 6 - 8

Stina Ahlberg: Sammanfläta (intertwine)

With a transfixing level of concentration and a graceful, gripping theatrical presence, Sweden’s Stina Ahlberg commands and deserves attention as she makes her choreographic debut in Los Angeles, the internationally-known dance innovator’s new home. Inspired by rituals, myths and icons of both Asia and Scandinavia, Ahlberg subtly evokes demons, Goddesses and timeless legends.

Mint Park and Hee-Eun Jeong: BIT

In dark shadows and shifting light, five performers take on a mysterious quality, enhanced by an immersive and sometimes jarring sound score by multi-media composer Mint Park, in this collaboration with choreographer Hee-Eun Jeong. The high-velocity movement has both rhythmic and primitive touches, while also reflecting the interest both women have for the cultures of film and fashion.

Robert Cucuzza: Circle Jerk

The rants and ramblings of André Breton and the Surrealists are re-imagined by director Robert Cucuzza with a focus on disturbingly sexist transcripts that read like nasty comments from internet trolls. Set to a live Gypsy Jazz score, this twisted journey through Breton’s subconscious is staged with a mostly female cast to reinterpret the crass material.
