Little Red

Casa 0101

2102 E. 1st St., Boyle Heights, 90033

8:00pm

CASA 0101 Theater is proud to present “Little Red”, a contemporary musical adaptation, with a punk-rock Chicana twist, of the classic fairytale Little Red Riding Hood. This Familia-friendly musical takes us on a rebellious teenager’s journey through the treacherous Holly-Woods where she must forgo technology and modern transportation in order to visit her ailing grandmother. Standing in her way is Don Coyote, a loner teen rocker that tries to seduce Red with his style, cool demeanor, and British accent, only to try and rob Red of the most precious thing that she has yet to appreciate – her family. With the help of the bumbling boyscout, Corky Woodsmán, and his owl Paz, will Little Red be able to brave the dangers of the Holly-Woods and the smooth talking Don Coyote? Will she be able to help her grandmother and find the value in her family’s traditions? Come find out in this fun and fresh adaptation of the classic tale that will have audiences laughing and cheering. Featuring original music by Grammy award-winning artist, Quetzal.

DAC Gallery Summer Group Exhibition

DAC Gallery

431 S Broadway, Los Angeles, CA 90013

11:00am

The Downtown Art Center (DAC) Gallery is pleased to present our Summer Group Exhibition featuring artists Carlos Beltran, Ching Ching Cheng, Valérie Daval, Tiffany Anne Jordan, Echo Lew, Juan Pierri, Molly Schulman and Thomas Sedgwick. The featured artists were selected by DAC Gallery curators from a pool of over 100 candidates who submitted works in a variety of 2D mediums.

Beltran’s mixed media on paper and canvas investigate human relationships with manmade environments using everyday materials and surfaces; Cheng’s ”Watercolor Engine” series express a fascination with the inner-workings of machines and re-interprets them as bright, pulsing organisms in translucent color; Daval draws from personal photographs to create paintings which elicit a sense of temporality and introspection; Jordan’s freestyle drawings depict everyday objects in black linework reminiscent of a mad scientist’s doodles; Lew’s process can be called photographic, however the result is a multitude of delicate, organic lines that are “drawn with light”; Pierri’s monotype prints and mixed media paper works depict map-like renderings of people and organs; Schulman’s paintings play with the potential for absurdity to be found in common places; Sedgwick’s compositions feature tightly-packed figures evocative of cellular clusters.

An opening reception will take place during the July Downtown Art Walk on Thursday, July 9th, from 7 to 9 PM. The exhibition will be on view at DAC Gallery from July 9th to August 28th, 2015.

Details:
• Free to attend; light refreshments served
• Parking available at meters and pay lots (see posted signs for details). Please note that DAC Gallery does not validate parking.
