LAX (Live Arts Exchange) DEPARTURE ~ This Saturday


LAX (Live Arts Exchange) DEPARTURE


10PM - 2AM / $10

Departure from the 2014 Live Arts Exchange Festival (LAX) begins with Los Angeles–based artist collective Mothership. Self-described as ‘science funktion, a sporadic function,’ Mothership is a space-themed gathering featuring local DJs, minimal performance and immersive video design.

Live Arts Exchange (LAX) creates space for and draws attention to contemporary performance emerging out of Los Angeles. This home-grown performance series showcases some of the most innovative artists and independent companies in LA, creates social events that encourage cross-genre hangouts, and provides opportunity for peer to peer critique. Produced by Los Angeles Performance Practice and the Bootleg Theater, LAX pulls contemporary theater and dance, film/video, animation, punk opera, and party into one space.


MUSIC: Funk Fiction / Lawrence Grey / Mayacamas / Sahy Uhns

LA Based design collective Portal 543 invites all visitors departing the Live Arts Exchange to explore the departures lounge with the new reality augmenter, the Sonic Hard Hat. Feel the sound waves and hear the party in a new way with these interactive performative devices!

Inspired by August Strindberg's The Stronger, this L.A. centric twist on a theater classic has been adapted into a 20 minute theatrical experience for an audience of one.
