Live Arts Exchange/LAX Festival 6 - Rebecca Bruno's PROCESSION RELIC
Thu. October 11, 2018
Doors: 6:30 pm / Show: 7:00 pm (event ends at 9:00 pm)
Los Angeles, CA
Rebecca Bruno’s Procession Relic has been developed in collaboration with artist and composer Yann Novak and gathers a stellar ensemble of dancers—including Bruno, Alison D’Amato, Jordan Saenz and Flora Wiegmann—who engage attention as a primary choreographic instrument within an undulating atmosphere of sound and light.
The work relates regenerative agricultural methods that support carbon sequestration, a natural capacity of Earth’s soil, to choreographic practice. Our soil actively absorbs, holds and releases carbon—in effect, it breaths. Using choreographic methods that center on the dancer’s similar capacities, Procession Relic utilizes a series of subtle constraints to draw attention to the body, the environment it inhabits, and the ways that each are perceived.

The annual LAX Festival serves as a highly visible platform that supports hundreds of local artists annually, and reaches thousands of audience members in the greater Los Angeles area. With performances and events that are geographically focused in and around Downtown L.A., the Festival program hosts ten days of contemporary performances by Los Angeles-based artists, presented in dialogue with works by guest artists from outside our city’s limits.
Beginning with last year’s 5th anniversary edition, we focus each Festival on an exchange platform with a specific city, engaging artists, curators and organizations in performance presentations, dialogues and artist-to-artist interactions that are designed to cultivate mutual inquiry and long-term network development.
Our 2018 LAX Festival is built on an exchange with artists, curators, and organizations in Philadelphia.
