REDCAT’s Studio series provides audiences the opportunity to experience a mix of interdisciplinary work and offbeat performances by some of LA’s most adventurous artists. The Spring program, developed by guest curators choreographer Neil Greenberg and artist Alexandro Segade, features six original works, including performances by several CalArtians.
Kathly Carbone, dancer, choreographer, teacher and CalArts performing arts librarian, teams up with composer/multi-instrumentalist and CalArts faculty member Vinny Golia, for a fully improvised interplay of dance and music in The Name for This Place. Watch a video of a previous collaborative effort above.
Writer-director Emily Mendelsohn (Theater MFA 09), songwriter Eric Lindley (Critical Studies MFA 08) and designer Shannon Scrofano (Theater MFA 06) collaborate on The Accumulative Years, a piece that uses “projected and sung text, images of mundane objects, and simple acts of daily survival to conjure a moving and opaque portrait of unspeakable loss.”
Todd Gray (Art BFA 79, Art MFA 89), who worked for years as Michael Jackson’s personal photographer, examines Black masculinity from both sides of the lens, and is joined by Max King Cap with a live, spoken word performance.
Other performers include: Gregory Barnett, Sarah Paul Ocampo, Cynthia Lee and Shyamala Moorty. More information on the Studio performances can be found on the REDCAT site.
