"As You Like It" by William Shakespeare

Ruth B. Shannon Center for the Performing Arts

6760 Painter Ave, Whittier, CA 90601

8:00pm

Adapted and directed by Gil Gonzalez, Associate Professor of Theatre & Communication Arts Shakespeare’s pastoral comedy is believed to have been written in 1599 or early 1600 and first published in the First Folio, 1623. Unable to act on their feelings and forced into exile in the Forest of Arden, lovers Rosalind and Orlando become entangled in a beguiling game of love, lust and mistaken identity. As You Like It subverts the traditional rules of romance. Gender roles, nature and politics are confused in a play that reflects on how bewildering yet utterly pleasurable life can be. (Royal Shakespeare Company).

The Southland Ensemble Plays Early Robert Ashley

REDCAT Roy and Edna Disney/CalArts Theater

631 West 2nd St, Los Angeles, 90012

8:30pm

Southland Ensemble, L.A.’s fast-rising experimental music collective, offers an intense portrait concert of the early oeuvre of Robert Ashley (1930–2014), a restless innovator of American music. Although the composer is best known for his later operas and theatrical works, the group focuses on a collection of seldom-performed compositions from the 1960s—
work thought to be more conceptual than musical. The ensemble sets out
to demonstrate otherwise. Its program features the iconic pieces She
Was a Visitor (1967) and The Wolfman(1964) alongside lesser-known, though equally strong, titles such as Trios (White on White) (1963) and the
In memoriam... trilogy (1963). Started in 2013, Southland Ensemble consists of co-directors Eric KM Clark and Christine Tavolacci and core members Casey Anderson, Matt Barbier, Orin Hildestad, James Klopfleisch, Jonathan Stehney and Cassia Streb.

The Brad Dutz 4tet

REDCAT Roy and Edna Disney/CalArts Theater

631 West 2nd St, Los Angeles, 90012

8:30pm

Celebrated for bringing an airy, bright, thoroughly original instrumental palette to its blend of 21st-century acoustic chamber music, improvisation and free jazz, the quartet led by ace percussionist and composer Brad Dutz first came together at REDCAT 10 years ago. It features Dutz on marimba, vibes and all manner of hand percussion, Brian Walsh on clarinet and bass clarinet, Paul Sherman on oboe and English horn, and Chris Votek on cello, with their precise yet fluid contrapuntal work conjuring a vibrant sound like no other. Even as Dutz, one of the most sought-after session percussionists in L.A., forgoes the conventional grooves in favor of color and texture, the band always stirs up a brisk, propulsive swing.
