Parade: U.S. Premiere

Hammer Museum

10899 Wilshire Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90024

7:30pm

Parade is the translation of a stage work by choreographer Adam Linder into a new cinematic form. Initially conceived by Linder as a reinterpretation of Jean Cocteau’s one-act ballet created in 1917 for Sergei Diaghilev’s Ballets Russes, Shahryar Nashat’s filmic adaptation departs from the two original sources to become a new text through which the three dancers’ performances are catalogued and mediated through a particularly authorial lens. Parade seeks to extend the life of the choreography into a new cultural form while reconsidering the role of the camera as a passive witness to performance and dance in broader terms. The presentation of Parade marks the work’s United States premiere. (2014, Dir. S. Nashat, 38 min.) 

A Q&A with artist Shahryar Nashat and choreographer Adam Linder, moderated by curator Aram Moshayedi, follows the screening.

music in the chinese garden

Huntington Library

1151 Oxford Road, San Marino, 91108

1:00pm

Has it been a while since you’ve taken the kids to the Huntington Garden?  Fall is the perfect time, when it’s warm enough to let the kids splash in the Children’s Garden (don’t forget the change of clothes – they will get drenched!), yet not too hot to walk around (carrying tired kids, or pushing heavy strollers).  And Wednesday is the perfect day, when there is Traditional Chinese music in the Garden of Flowing Fragrance.  Seriously, don’t you feel more relaxed just saying that?
