June 19 & 20, 2015 // EXCERPTS premiers @ Highways Performance Space

Choreographer Samantha Blake Goodman brings together nine Los Angeles based artists for the creation of her new evening length work EXCERPTS. Unraveling in two parts as five and Shades in Lavender, this live performance project is built in collaboration with Crystal Sepúlveda, Samantha Mohr, Ted Byrnes, Pari Desai, Nicolette Mishkan, Katelan Breymar, Dayna Richards, Jaman Laws, and Kathryn Nockels.

EXCERPTS is a meditation on the present as it is constant flux, playing with the intimacy of seeing and being watched, of listening and being heard. It is about feeling and constructing heightened conditions in shared spaces as it challenges traditional uses of the black box theater.

Featuring a live horn section, improvisational sound on drum set, and three dancers, the evening’s program is designed to provoke heightened experiences for both performers and audience, through interchangeable scores created for movement, sound, lighting, and costume.

This project is funded in part by the Rema Hort Mann Foundation's YoYoYo Grant.
