12th Schaeffer's Era
Mon, Nov 23 at 3 PM EST
Total running time: 90 min.
Ghost Road Company in Los Angeles and Warsaw Bauhaus Foundation present an international real-time collaboration: original works of dance, theater and film, created to respond to the work of maverick Polish composer and playwright Boguslaw Schaeffer. In Warsaw, under the auspices of AUREA PORTA–a Polish non-profit organization devoted to disseminating the legacy of Boguslaw Schaeffer’s work through artistic projects—well-known actors and musicians Włodek Pawlik (GRAMMY Award Winner), Michał Urbaniak, Marcin Wyrostek will perform Schaeffer’s work Era Schaeffera, while Los Angeles-based actors Peter Mark, Anthony Nikolchev, Paul Outlaw, Izabella Miko and Jessica Emmanuel will interpret excerpts from his play A Multimedia Affair, adapted by the project’s director, Maciej Sobociński performing in situ at REDCAT-CALARTS theatre.
Noted Los Angeles choreographers Heidi Duckler, Laurie Sefton and Micaela Taylor are each creating dance films shot in unique outdoor locations in which company members perform short works inspired by or accompanied by Schaeffer’s music. This 90 minute live stream from Warsaw and Los Angeles will consist of simultaneous performances being mixed live by the theater director as a veritable DJ.
