Description

Set to a recording of the 2011 gospel hit, “Spiritual,” performers d. Sabela Grimes, Jahanna Blunt and Amy Shimson Santos roll out the stage for Anna B. Scott’s newest creation of the same title.  Critically acclaimed Bradley Michaud unfurls Cedars, the 13th dance work he’s choreographed for his company, performed by Chelsea Asman, Nicole Cox and Jessica Harper. Waewdao Sirisook exposes her experience of conflicting cultural messages in the dance theater solo Lanna Dream.  Curator/co-producer Keith Glassman will uncork the effervescent septuagenarian Klyda Mahoney in Portrait of a Three Hundred Year Old Woman, accompanied by L.A. poet Pat Payne’s “How To Find Darkness in the New World” and live saxophone by Charles Sharp.

This performance is not recommended for children.
