Everything Moves

"When we think of 'the commons,' we think of the collective commons of the air, the earth, water... but what if we consider the commons of the collective imagination?" -Amy Russell, The School of Embodied Poetics

FLUXUS Festival: Crowd Out Concert at Disney Hall

About This Performance

Pulitzer Prize winner David Lang had the inspiration for crowd out during a soccer match in London, where he heard the thousands of untrained voices swell, crest, and recede – at times in unison, and at times in total contrast with one another. He composed this major vocal work for one thousand voices as a way of framing how we understand the excitement, fear, and loneliness we feel in crowds; the text itself was crowdsourced with the help of various Internet search engines.

Choreographer Dimitri Chamblas will direct and Lesley Leighton will conduct a performance at Walt Disney Concert Hall, as part of Noon to Midnight, where performers will intermingle with the audience, slowly transforming the swirling babble and chatter into a stunningly orchestrated whirlwind of voices.

Tickets for this performance can be obtained by purchasing tickets for the daylong festival, Noon to Midnight. There are 2 options to attend. See details.

Visit fluxuslaphil.tumblr.com, where essays by prominent artists and scholars on aspects of the Fluxus movement and documentation of festival events will be posted throughout the LA Phil's 2018/19 season.

SORORITY: OUT in partnership with LAX Festival

 

“…a high-minded variety hour/art party for the ages…” – 5 Every Day

SORORITY is a performance k-hole evoking the New York City art scene of the 80s and 90s. Curated and hosted by Gina Young and centering the work of women, trans and queer performers, SORORITY is a space for experimental works-in-progress, script-in-hand readings, theatrical situations and vulnerable solo work. It’s a wild, intellectual party that attracts lines out the door.

The theme for this round is OUT.

Sorority

So excited to perform in this badass performance series curated by Gina Young.

A late-night salon evoking the New York City performance scene of the 80s and 90s, SORORITY brings together women, trans and queer artists from the community to share experimental works-in-progress. Performances range from script-in-hand readings to vulnerable solo work, experimental movement and music. It's a wild, intellectual party that attracts lines out the door. 

SORORITY has been presented by the Hammer Museum.
