A Special Night at the Music Center

We need to hear from you.
Today, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. The local news you read here every day is crafted for you, but right now, we need your help to keep it going. In these uncertain times, your support is even more important. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership. Thank you.

Come out to the L.A. Music Center Plaza Wednesday night and see beauty under the stars!

It’s a school night? You have to work early the next day? Phooey! TRUST ME ON THIS…you’ll want to make an exception for this special evening.

David Michalek’s Slow Dancing is an outdoor exhibit of video portraits featuring the worlds leading dancers. Slowed down in “hyper slow motion”, the films projected on large 16-foot screens celebrate the grace of motion. Representing classic and modern dance, each movement is stretched into a 10-minute film.

A photographer with a film school background, Michalek began his career as an assistant to famed photog Herb Ritts, before getting his own portraits in such periodicals as The New Yorker and Vogue. Experimenting with the idea of three-dimensional portraiture, Michalek has participated in many community and public space art projects since the mid-90's.

Wednesday’s event commissioned by the L.A. Music Center & presented by Dance Camera West will be the coming together of many art forms, photography, film, & dance. It’s also a good opportunity to enjoy a night outside downtown before our chilly L.A. fall nights get here.

The event is free, although parking is $8, but since true Angelenos never pay to park, you may want to take the Metro (yay!) or arrive early for a primo street spot.

Wednesday, Sept. 19, 7 – 9p.m.
135 N. Grand Ave.
Food & cash bar available on the Plaza at Patina’s
