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.
“Experimental theater so unprecedented and boundary-breaking that it feels like messages from the distant future.”
