Carmina Escobar: FIESTA PERPETUA! Saturday, January 13, 2018 from REDCAT on Vimeo.

Floating rafts on picturesque Echo Park Lake become mobile stages for FIESTA PERPETUA!, a community ritual of manifestation led and conceived by acclaimed experimental Mexican vocalist Carmina Escobar with the 40-member Oaxacan youth brass band Maqueos Music, conducted by Yulissa Maqueos, and celebrated dancer/choreographer Oguri. Throughout the afternoon, performance interventions take place on and around the lake, following a mystical algorithmic schedule until sundown. Originally commissioned by Machine Project, Escobar’s ritualistic performance re-imagines a processional festival as a communal experience that reveals the syncretic, cross-cultural nature of LA.

LOCATION: Echo Park Lake

Unas balsas flotantes en el pintoresco lago de Echo Park se convierten en escenarios móviles para FIESTA PERPERTUA!, un ritual comunitario dirigido por la aclamada vocalista experimental mexicana Carmina Escobar con 40 miembros oaxaqueños de la banda juvenil de instrumentos de viento Maqueos Music, dirigida por Yulissa Maqueos, y el celebrado artista de danza Oguri. A lo largo de la tarde, las intervenciones performativas ocurren en y alrededor del lago, siguiendo un horario algorítmico místico hasta la puesta del sol. Originalmente comisionado por Machine Project, el performance ritual de Escobar reimagina la celebración de una procesión como una experiencia comunitaria que revela el carácter multicultural y sincrético de Los Ángeles.
