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 durational performances: one indoors, and one outdoors. Audiences are invited to come and go as they wish, and a meal will be shared at the end of the performance.
John Burtle, Mariel Carranza, Rochelle Fabb, Douglas Green, Rebeca Hernandez, Benjamin Jarrett (USA/Hungary), Carol McDowell, Fausto Mendez Luna (Mexico), Lala Nomada (Mexico/Austria), Paul Outlaw, Graciela Ovejero Postigo (Argentina), Crystal Sepúlveda (Puerto Rico/USA), Cecilia Stelini (Brazil), Rossen Ventislavov, Allison Wyper
Note: Encounter #44 will take place Saturday, January 20, 3-6pm at a public location TBA. For location, RSVP at http://www.rhizomaticarts.com/rsvp-encounter44.
This performance is supported in part by a Foundation for Contemporary Arts Emergency Grant.
