Three Acts, Two Dancers, One Radio Host

University Park Campus Bovard Auditorium (ADM)

3551 Trousdale Pkwy, Los Angeles, 90089


This American Life host Ira Glass has been working with Monica Bill Barnes & Company to invent a show that combines two art forms thatas Glass puts ithave no business being together: dance and radio. One is all words and no visuals. One is all visuals and no words. The result is a funny, lively and very talky evening of dance and stories that brought down the house in its first test run at Carnegie Hall. Glass and choreographer Monica Bill Barnes thought their work shared a sensibility. Glass found Barness dances funny and intensely personal. Barnes, in turn, says, Ira has a way of telling stories that makes me . . . empathize, which is what I want an audience to do when we are dancing. In May 2012 Barnes and Glass collaborated on three short dances that were part of a This American Life variety show that was beamed into movie theatres nationwide. It was such a success that they decided to do a full show that combines stories and dance. Join us for an exciting evening of entertaining and unexpected convergences.

Sunday Creative Writing Workshop

Los Angeles Writers Group Headquarters

1728 Laurel Canyon Blvd., Unit B, CA, Los Angeles, 90046

11:00am to 1:00pm

Our biggest hit! Write every Sunday, and learn a lot about writing along the way. Introducing the Los Angeles Writers Group Sunday workshops! Every Sunday from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., Los Angeles Writers Group will offer a workshop where you can show up and write for 2 hours based on creative writing prompts we give you. Write, then read (or don’t read – no pressure!) what you wrote, but either way, you’ll leave with new writings, with new ideas, and feeling inspired. The writing exercises we give are based on the needs of the group, on sheer creativity, the elements of fiction, and to write things you may have never otherwise written. Please note that these workshops are not lecture-based. We get right down to writing. There is also no critique portion in these workshops, only writing.
