NEW FAITHFUL DISCO at Live Arts Exchange

Bootleg Theater

2220 Beverly Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90057

2:30pm to 8:00pm

In NEW FAITHFUL DISCO, a dance work-in-progress by Los Angeles choreographer Meg Wolfe, belief is made manifest as energy. A trio of dancers—taisha paggett, Rae Shao-Lan and Wolfe—feel it, generate it and re-mix it as they prepare to take on something big. Love, faith, impermanence? Pleasure? Power? Soul retrieval? DISCO is an accumulation and dispersion of bodies and effort and hope in the form of a dance. Featuring Maria de los Angeles (Cuca) Esteves’ layered score of nature sounds and disco rhythms transmitted by three cassette players, with stylings by Gregory Barnett.

“Wolfe has risen to prominence in Los Angeles’ small but proud avant-garde dance scene.” LOS ANGELES TIMES

ACTRESS FURY at Live Arts Exchange

Bootleg Theater

2220 Beverly Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90057

4:00pm to 8:00pm

Set inside an actual dressing room, ACTRESS FURY is the unruly passion play of one tormented actress as she wrestles with her own deep-seated desire to be extraordinary. Sourcing three narratives of highly ambitious characters— Sophocles’ Ajax, the diaries of Vaslav Nijinsky, and the recollections of abstract painter Bridget Riley— dramatic threads unfurl through dance to reveal an anti-strategy about being female and an artist in the wake of third wave feminism.

“It’s refreshing to see female performers being this bold.” - THE VILLAGE VOICE

The notorious Adonis Theater, legendary gay adult movie house closed under homophobic pressure from developers, now “reappears” creatively reimagined as a modern Brigadoon for one night only as artists from the LA queer community descend on Human Resources, also a former adult theater now turned experimental art gallery, to share their hot visions around themes of Gay Sex and Queer Liberation in context of the current state of assimilation, disappearing LGBTQ space and shrinking ghettos. It is a creative activist effort and sexy night of interactive queer entertainment and community which will transform Human Resources into a sexual amusement park of gay art, video and performance. Join us for a night at The Adonis.

Participating artists: Gregory Barnett, Ben Cuevas, Andrew Disorder, David Parke Epstein, Hank Henderson, Hunter, Jason Jenn, Andrea Lambert, David LeBarron, Ricky Luna, Ian MacKinnon, Martin Matamoros, Leopold Nunan, Robert Patrick, Steven Reigns, Jack Shamblin, Vyper SynVille, Evans Vestal Ward, Trevor Wayne, Travis Wood, Rich Yap and more.

Human Resources was founded by a team of creative individuals who seek to broaden engagement with contemporary and conceptual art, with an emphasis on performative and underexposed modes of expression. Human Resources is not-for-profit and seeks to foster widespread public appreciation of the performative arts by encouraging maximum community access. Human Resources also serves as a point of convergence for diverse and disparate art communities to engage in conversation and idea-sharing promoting the sustainability of non-traditional art forms.
