Performance Program at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX)
Live Performance by Renowned Director and Choreographer Sarah Elgart September 28 & 29, 2013
For the first time, the Los Angeles World Airports’ Art Program will present an original performance work at the Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), entitled Everywhere Nowhere. Directed and choreographed by Sarah Elgart, Everywhere Nowhere is a site-specific, multi-sensory spectacle of movement, sound, and color, featuring an original musical score by composer Yuval Ron, projections by director Kevin Kerslake and artist Stephen Glassman, and costume design by Swinda Reichelt. Everywhere Nowhere will premiere on Saturday, Sept. 28 at 7:30 p.m., with a second performance on Sunday, Sept. 29 at 7:30 p.m. Both performances are free and open to the public, and will take place in the outdoor courtyard located on the Arrivals level in between Terminals 1 and 2 at LAX.
Everywhere Nowhere was commissioned as part of Influx: Art at LAX, the airport’s first-ever public art festival. Presented by Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA), in partnership with the City of Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs (DCA), Influx features 11 original, site-specific art installations located throughout LAX and includes the work of 45 Los Angeles-based artists. On view through the end of 2013, Influx is a virtual survey of Los Angeles’s diverse art practices, including video, large-scale sculptures, mixed-media, ink drawings, and murals. Prior to the performances of Everywhere Nowhere on Sept. 28 and 29, from 5-7 p.m., LAX will host its first Art Walk, inviting the public to take self-guided tours of the various Influx installations located in the airport’s public spaces. Maps of Influx will be available at the Art Walk Welcome Table at the Terminal 1 Arrivals level. As they explore the Influx installations, visitors can call in using their cell phones and listen to prerecorded audio interviews with the artists. The Influx Art Walk map is also available for download at http://www.lawa.org/welcome_LAX.aspx?id=7580.
