such as The Cuckoo Clock, Try To Fly and Letís Steal The Moon.

From the creators of
TRACK 3 and ANTON'S UNCLES
Theatre Movement Bazaar and Bootleg Theater present:
BIG SHOT: a.k.a this is not The Godfather
BIG SHOT is a
vaudevillian theatrical collage inspired by The Godfather
films and novel. The Godfather is an iconic story; the novel and
subsequent motion pictures have had significant international
influence. Its remarkable success came in part due to its ability
present the gangster genre via a dysfunctional family. Everyone
relate. For BIG SHOT, TMB shakes down this iconic story to create
work, echoing the source and investigating family dynamics, power,
criminal behavior, and being an Italian American. In BIG SHOT, the
American gangster genre is upended through stylized theatrics,
movement, song, dance and pasta.
Coming in May
To help meet the challenges of presenting and
producing dance in Los Angeles, Pentacle steps up to the plate
with Home Grown, a new pilot program that offers participants
opportunities to show their work, to build and expand the
audiences, and to create audience identity with the Bootleg
This program will feature a new contemporary work by Danza
Floricanto/USAís Artistic Director Gema Sandoval, and a
celebration of LA Dance that will include the Dance Resource
Centerís 2015 presentation of the Horton Awards.
Founded in 1975, Danza Floricanto/USA is
the oldest existing professional Mexican folk dance troupe in
Southern California. From an Aztec ritual to the vibrant fiestas
of today's Jalisco, from the Spanish-influenced tropics of
Veracruz to the conflictive realities of the Chicano experience,
Danza Floricanto/USA presents the bold, colorful panorama of its
Mexican heritage as it interacts with its American reality.
This year marks the second Dance Resource Center Horton Award
Ceremony focusing on those who have contributed to the Los
Angeles area dance community. The Horton Awards celebrates dance
in Los Angeles, honoring those who sustain the field and propel
it forward. DRC will dedicate 3 community awards to local dance
advocates, educators, presenters, or funders and one to an
artist who has enriched the field.
