“…a high-minded variety hour/art party for the ages…” – 5 Every Day
SORORITY is a performance k-hole evoking the New York City art scene of the 80s and 90s. Curated and hosted by Gina Young and centering the work of women, trans and queer performers, SORORITY is a space for experimental works-in-progress, script-in-hand readings, theatrical situations and vulnerable solo work. It’s a wild, intellectual party that attracts lines out the door.
The theme for this round is OUT. Performers to be announced soon!https://www.bootlegtheater.org/event/1562343/
With performances and events that are geographically focused in and around Downtown L.A., the Festival program hosts ten days of contemporary performance by Los Angeles-based artists, presented in dialogue with works by guest artists from beyond our borders.
