It’s that time of the month: time for another L.A.S. / Los Angeles Stories! For the month of April, we’ve teamed up with the Month Of Photography Los Angeles and the American Society Of Media Photographers to do an all photo based storytelling session. We’re featuring all photographers storytellers (Save for the host/me.) and will certainly have some fun things to share. If you’d like to come tonight, there are few things to know: catch them below!
Hey, Metro-ing folk: look at this! There is a storytelling night at Stories in Echo Park called BUSted and it’s all about LA people who take the Metro. It’s happening Saturday, April 26.
Having never seen a performance by the Amsterdam based Emio Greco/PC dance company, I was fully unprepared for the extremalist, action that unfolded during their award winning production ROCCO at REDCAT on Thursday, April 17th. I have also never witnessed such violent and tender masculine prowess and physical endurance on a stage, in a theater space nor in an arena before. Coming close would be Nick Duran’s powerfully emotional every time you are near which he presented only a few nights before ROCCO with Brian Getnick at Pieter in Highland Park on the evening of the blood moon eclipse. I venture to imagine that if Nick lived in Amsterdam he would collaborate with Emio Greco/PC–or vice versa if Greco and Pieter C. Schouten were based in L.A. In Nick, I see a younger Emio(if only in premonition from photos and videos) with a similar originality and control of one’s dramaturgic, dance performance aesthetic.
