Studio: Summer 2010
Studio: Summer 2010
The ongoing series for new works and works-in-progress offers adventurous audiences the opportunity to experience original, ambitiously offbeat performances by an interdisciplinary mix of experimental Los Angeles artists. This edition of Studio was curated with guest curators Sheetal Gandhi and Marissa Chibas, and features the following six original works:
F-STOP SERENADE: LIGHT BULB PROJECT (PART ONE)
Combining found footage, original photography and live musical accompaniment, Mark Cosmo Segurson and his musical ensemble F-Stop Serenade present a visual history of the common household light bulb––from the first incandescent to our current fluorescent nightmare.
JUAN DIEGO RAMIREZ: THE WHITEST MEXICAN
With rigor and humor writer-performer Juan Diego Ramirez’s solo performance, as a man obsessed with how other people perceive him, illuminates and confronts the complexities of Mexican identity in the United States.
ARIANNE HOFFMANN: SOUND
Using a waterproof contact microphone and an underlying motivation to treat the body as matter, dance-artist Arianne Hoffmann performs an exquisite movement score to the sounds created by her own body as she moves.
CATCH ME BIRD: ANVIL
Equal parts reality show and high-powered contemporary dance, Catch Me Bird transforms the ups and downs of their real life relationship into an artistic journey, exploding the boundaries of art and life with intimate portraits, verbal sparring and madcap humor.
DINO DINCO: REAL WOMEN HAVE PERIODS
In a gender-bending nod to Real Women Have Curves, artist and filmmaker Dino Dinco and his cast celebrate sex education, bio-cycles and intra-familial communication with a theater piece that employs dialogue extracted verbatim from a 1970’s public health video.
LOS ANGELES ELECTRIC 8: OCTET
With a sense of curiosity and humor, eight classically trained musicians re-imagine Igor Stravinsky’s Octet for Wind Instruments (1923) for eight electric guitars and execute its deliberated timbral combinations with glorious effect.
Studio is supported by a grant from The James Irvine Foundation and the National Endowment for the Arts, which believes that a great nation deserves great art.
