Win Tix to UCLA LIve: DV8 Physical Theatre

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.


Lloyd Newson is bringing his radical DV8 Physical Theatre to UCLA for two shows this weekend. For those not familiar, Newson and his troupe create some of the most interesting dance performances out there today (check out these three amazing YouTube clips). This Friday and Saturday, they will bring the controversial “To Be Straight With You,” which explores tolerance, intolerance, religion and sexuality based on 85 interviews with the pious and apostate, straight and gay, activists, among others. It ultimately asks how modern society will reconcile faith and human rights.

With all that said, we're giving away 5 pairs of tickets to Friday night's performance (if you need to buy tickets now, you can here). To enter, leave a comment on this post sharing an ideal restaurant on the Westside to pair for an evening at UCLA Live. Maybe a visit nearby Little Osaka along Sawtelle for some ramen or some yummy ice cream sandwiches at Diddy Riese Cookies. There's plenty of choices on the Westside, so go at it!
