New Original Works Festival (Week Three)

REDCAT

631 W. 2nd St., Los Angeles, CA 90012

8:30pm

"The Future is NOW--For the artists, in their restless journey to create new original works, the festival has become a base camp from which to launch. And for the audiences, it's become a unique home base at which to put their fingers on the pulse of cutting-edge contemporary performance." --Los Angeles Times

Each summer REDCAT celebrates the vitality of Los Angeles' vibrant and growing community of artists making work for the stage. We transform our theater into an artist-driven creative laboratory where disciplines are challenged and blurred, traditions are re-imagined, and hybrid visions take hold.

This year's three-week festival launches nine new original works by Los Angeles dance, theater, music and multimedia performing artists.

In addition, we’ll get into how musicians can both save the day and get their foot in the door (through composing, or getting their songs placed), as they help service filmmakers and music supervisors in need.

Moderated by BMI musician/songwriter, actor and Sirius/XM DJ (“Little Steven’s Underground Garage”) Michael Des Barres. Panel guests TBA.
