Anti-Girl: The First Glow-in-The-Dark Exhibit

The Standard, Downtown LA

550 South Flower Street, Los Angeles, 90071

8:00pm

Tiphanie Brooke aka Anti-Girl puts on her first glow-in-the-dark art exhibit at the Standard in Downtown. In 2009, Brooke turned her hearts collection (2008 – 2010) into various large installations, with the first unraveling at Phoenix Design Week (AIGA). Tiphanie adapted these pieces for both public and private — collectors and clients. As well as designing and building an installation for her solo show, a heart condition.

In early 2010 she began experimenting with manual photography and by April 2010, she had won an award from Phoenix College for a deconstructed photo she took, which was later displayed at the Phoenix Art Museum.

In May 2012 she moved back to Los Angeles (Tiphanie is originally from San Pedro, California), to attend Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, where she is currently earning her BFA in graphics. Since returning, she created, "The Heart of LA" (icon) which she originally designed as a response to Milton Glaser's I heart NY and as a further adaption to her lovelife heart. Her LA heart has attracted a lot of attention and is quickly becoming an "urban art icon" around the city of angels. - discoverLA

Vox Lumiere–The Phantom of the Opera (OPENING NIGHT)

Los Angeles Theatre Center

514 S. Spring St., Los Angeles, CA 90013

8:00pm

(SEPT. 19-DEC. 13) An explosive mash-up of music, dance, technology and silent film that offers a fresh take on this timeless tale. Original songs and powerful live performances blend with the 1925 silent film to create a show-stopping-spectacle that brings the Lon Chaney classic to three-dimensional, high-decibel life. Singers, dancers and musicians give voice to the silent film projected behind them, playing off each other, the audience and the onscreen story to create a magical exchange. Latin and French for "Voices of Light,” Vox Lumiere is equal parts rock concert, opera, musical theater and multimedia spectacle, all working together to tell a story with projected silent movies. Each evening begins with a red carpet entry for the patrons, photo ops with the cast, refreshments and pre-show entertainment in the lobby. Once inside, patrons experience a live band, surround projection screens, hi-definition sound and a light show. The singers and dancers are lavishly costumed in steampunk-inspired attire. Eight performances: Sept. 19 & 20; Oct. 10 & 11; Nov. 14 & 15; and Dec. 12 & 13; Fridays and Saturdays @ 8 p.m.; Los Angeles Theatre Center 514 S Spring St., Los Angeles, CA 90013; $40-$75; 844 VOX-ROCK or www.voxlumiere.com Facebook: www.facebook.com/voxlumiere; Twitter: @voxlumiere
