Performance West: Transforming Performance(s)
April 8-11, 2010
hosted by California State University, Northridge, Performance Ensemble
located at x Repertory Theatre in downtown Los Angeles.
Performance West is a resurgence of the long-standing performance festival held at San Francisco State University. And we are so thrilled to get it going again. Performance West is a performance festival for students, faculty, working performers, ensembles, and community members, who are working within the performing arts that produce and/or are interested in producing work dedicated to social justice. Performance work dedicated to cultivating social justice interrogates, narrates, critiques and offers visions and strategies for social change within an unjust world.
Mondo Bizarro and M.U.G.A.B.E.E. will conduct workshops over the course of the festival on vocal improvisation, story circle/narrative generation, and physicality. These workshops will be based on the leaders’ ongoing work Race Peace and will provide an opportunity for performers to celebrate and explore common bonds, debate differences, and lay the civic foundation to pursue solutions to their problems. Performers will have the opportunity to weave their new skills into an original performance.
We are also so lucky to have Mondo Bizarro and M.U.G.A.B.E.E. as the headlining performance on Saturday night with their work: The Race Peace.
