Automata joins Bootleg Theater, Union Station, Ace Hotel Downtown Los Angeles, The Springs and other locations in hosting a two-week celebration of new, experimental and experiential live arts.
LAX FESTIVAL EVENTS AT AUTOMATA:
Brian Getnick / Moonchops
Evoking a moonlit forest, MOONCHOPS draws its performative and visual materials from Brian Getnick’s body of writing about a rural town and its inhabitants, living and dead. In this concrete fantasy for the theater, Getnick inhabits a succession of characters who lead viewers deeper and deeper into the winter woods, toward the heart of his story.
PERFORMANCES: 9/22, 9/23, 9/24
WHYTEBERG / as occurred, as recalled
Choreographers Gracie Whyte and Laura Berg generate a new work for the LAX Festival. AS OCCURRED, AS RECALLED explores visceral memories and personal reflections of perception. Audiences move through a series of solos and duets, revealing how repeatedly revisited memories can become obscured from reality—and memory can prove malleable.
PERFORMANCES: 9/25, 9/26
John Eagle, Janie Geiser, Cassia Streb / Sound House
SOUND HOUSE is a performance/installation centered on a series of tasks that shape the sound in the room, enacted by a group of eight artist/performers who manipulate objects, controllers, microphones, speakers, walls and wooden puppets. Specific and interdependent, their actions emerge from a variety of sources—including the history of the Minuteman Missile project, bricklaying, time and its measurement, and more.
PERFORMANCES: 10/1, 10/2
