Big City Forum: Creative Action #2

Yuval Sharon – Artistic Director, The Industry
Danielle Agami – Artistic Director, Ate9 Dance Company
Victoria Looseleaf – L.A. TImes arts journalist, contributing reporter at KUSC

In conjunction with Otis’ Creative Action program, Big City Forum presents a series of four discussions featuring individuals who reinvent social space and redefine how we engage with each other. This panel addresses the collaborative process between an opera director and a dance choreographer/director in relation to their recent trans-disciplinary staging of Italo Calvino’s “Invisible Cities” at L.A.’s Union Station and the current performance installation of Terry Riley's In C at the Hammer Museum. Organized by alumnus Leonardo Bravo.
