Upstairs at Joan in Los Angeles

JOAN 4300 West Jefferson Boulevard #1 Los Angeles, California 90016
Sat, 06/17/2017 - 12:00am - Sun, 08/06/2017 - 12:00am

Summer Guthery's space in Los Angeles is presenting Sam Moyer in their main space and Robert Ashley's Perfect Lives upstairs. There will be some scores and a couple episodes from VIDAS PERFECTAS on show. Very happy to have this work out West again.

from the pub:
"
As a continually adapting piece of music which is different each time it is performed, Perfect Lives does not have a traditional score. The libretto on view shows the highly intricate diacritic notation which indicates the rhythm and intonation for its performance. Also on view is material from the 2010-2014 Spanish language re-staging and new television version of Perfect Lives: VIDAS PERFECTAS, directed by Alex Waterman, produced by Marfa Ballroom, the Whitney Museum, and El Paso Opera.”

Postcommodity and Alex Waterman
in memoriam...

in memoriam… adds a new score and production by Postcommodity and Alex Waterman to a suite of four early scores by the American composer Robert Ashley. The fifth score honours the lives of Mary Cecil, Victoria Callihoo (née Belcourt), and Eleanor (Helene) Thomas Garneau, three Indigenous women from territory at the turn of the Century as it became the province of Alberta. This significant addition continues Ashley’s project investigating the connections between musical forms and constructs of historicization, opening a conversation regarding whom and how we memorialize individuals and inscribe their legacies.
