Co-presented with the CalArts Aesthetics and Politics Program
Eminent American philosopher Judith Butler visits REDCAT to give the third of four Los Angeles lectures in connection with her residency at the CalArts School of Critical Studies' Aesthetics and Politics Program. Assembled under the title of “Demonstrating Precarity: Vulnerability, Embodiment, and Resistance,” her talks address questions of political dissent, protest, resistance and violence in light of recent developments in the United States and abroad. Butler has authored numerous influential books, among them Gender Trouble: Feminism and the Subversion of Identity (1990) and Precarious Life. The Powers of Mourning and Violence (2004) and, most recently, Dispossession: The Performative in the Political (2013).

The Southland Ensemble Plays Early Robert Ashley

REDCAT Roy and Edna Disney/CalArts Theater

631 West 2nd St, Los Angeles, 90012

8:30pm

Southland Ensemble, L.A.’s fast-rising experimental music collective, offers an intense portrait concert of the early oeuvre of Robert Ashley (1930–2014), a restless innovator of American music. Although the composer is best known for his later operas and theatrical works, the group focuses on a collection of seldom-performed compositions from the 1960s—
work thought to be more conceptual than musical. The ensemble sets out
to demonstrate otherwise. Its program features the iconic pieces She
Was a Visitor (1967) and The Wolfman(1964) alongside lesser-known, though equally strong, titles such as Trios (White on White) (1963) and the
In memoriam... trilogy (1963). Started in 2013, Southland Ensemble consists of co-directors Eric KM Clark and Christine Tavolacci and core members Casey Anderson, Matt Barbier, Orin Hildestad, James Klopfleisch, Jonathan Stehney and Cassia Streb.
