mecca vazie andrews and the MOVEMENT movement

SAT, Feb 3, 2018
4 pm

Floor 3, Susan and John Hess Family Gallery and Theater

mecca vazie andrews and the MOVEMENT movement present an immersive performance in dialogue with the work of Laura Owens.

Swimming through a collage of past events, [title] combines movement, sound, and projection to re-appropriate what once was with abandon. In doing so, andrews re-imagines another possible future. As we collectively process and redefine the meaning of freedom, the artist invites participants to confront a new cycle of enlightenment fueled by necessary cultural friction, re-education, and evolution.  

The running time is approximately 50 minutes.

This program is organized in conjunction with Laura Owens in collaboration with 356 S. Mission Rd.

mecca vazie andrews is a Los Angeles-based instructor, choreographer, and dancer. Andrews founded her company the MOVEMENT movement in 2007 to explore alternative performance experiences that engage with local communities and cultural histories.

Tickets are required ($10 adults; $8 members, students, and seniors). Members: please log in to reserve tickets.
