Since 2012, leading performance artists from Los Angeles, plus international guests, have met regularly to engage in a practice called Encounter, organized by Peruvian American artist Mariel Carranza. Encounters are durational, improvised, action/time/space based performances inhabiting private studios, art venues, and public spaces across the city. For Pacific Standard Time Festival: Live Arts LA/LA, Los Angeles artists will be joined by international guests from Latin America and Europe for two free durational performances: one indoors, and one outdoors. Audiences are invited to come and go as they wish.
John Burtle, Mariel Carranza, Rochelle Fabb, Douglas Green, Rebeca Hernandez, Carol McDowell, Fausto Mendez Luna (Mexico), Lala Nomada (Mexico/Austria), Paul Outlaw, Graciela Ovejero Postigo (Argentina), Crystal Sepúlveda (Puerto Rico/USA), Rossen Ventislavov, Allison Wyper
Location will be emailed to those who RSVP here.
Note: Encounter #43 takes place Sunday, January 14, 4-7pm followed by a communal meal, at Human Resources. RSVP at http://www.rhizomaticarts.com/rsvp-encounter43.
This performance is supported in part by a Foundation for Contemporary Arts Emergency Grant.
