NOW 3 @ REDCAT: Bringing out the Big Guns!

LAist relies on your reader support.
Your tax-deductible gift today powers our reporters and keeps us independent. We rely on you, our reader, not paywalls to stay funded because we believe important news and information should be freely accessible to all.

Moving into the third and final weekend of REDCAT's New Original Works Festival, the program is at its most varied--music, dance and performance art. Included in this evening of innovative projects are alumni of previous REDCAT productions Anne LeBaron (with Douglas Kearney) and Rosanna Gamson/World Wide with one woman bundle of fury and fun Kristina Wong!

Award-winning composer Anne LeBaron and poet/writer Douglas Kearney present a theatrical song cycle they call Sucktion, telling the story of a woman’s cyber-erotic transformation from abject housewife into a self-sufficient cyborg. Written for the ensemble soNu, Sucktion features a female vocalist supported by percussion, laptop and a musical appliance--a subversive vacuum cleaner.
