The second program in REDCAT’s sixth annual New Original Works Festival is brimming with things rarely seen before. This week (only), two interdisciplinary artist collaborations inhabit the basement of Disney Hall and, as the theater’s executive director, Mark Murphy says, “I can’t wait to see the results!”
Innovative media artist Carole Kim collaborates with award winning choreographer/dancer Oguri, percussionist/composer Alex Cline and multi-instrumentalist Dan Clucas to create N1. And performance art inspired punk band Jennifer The Leopard (J-Lep), fuses feminism and cock-rock into a new genre of post-punk under the guise of an "all-girl band."
Wow! Not a typical day at the theater, but, then again, that’s what this highly acclaimed three week festival is all about—giving local artists the opportunity to present their pushing-the-envelope creations to new audiences.
