The annual NOW Festival transforms REDCAT into a vital laboratory for the creation of new contemporary performances. This year's festival launches nine new works by Los Angeles artists who invent hybrid artistic disciplines, re-imagine traditions and confront urgent issues.

WEEK THREE: August 10–12

Luis Lara Malvacías and Jeremy Nelson: C

In movement rich with playful rhythmic juxtapositions, Luis Lara Malvacías and Jeremy Nelson navigate a domestic environment, evoked by furniture and décor, in their collaboration C. Video imagery on multiple surfaces enhances this astute exploration of time—the latest in a series of highly structured improvisational duets they are creating—one for each letter of the alphabet: A to Z.

Gina Young: BUTCH BALLET

BUTCH BALLET is writer and director Gina Young’s love letter to female masculinity. A series of private moments and pedestrian “dances” for a cast of butch, gender nonconforming and nonbinary performers (with no actual ballet involved!), BUTCH BALLET is a movement-theater piece of minimalist vignettes tackling softness and hardness, otherness and belonging, love and desire, butch iconography and of course… swimwear.

Timur and The Dime Museum: Artaud in the Black Lodge

Artaud in the Black Lodge explores the imagined psychic connections between Antonin Artaud, William S. Burroughs and David Lynch. Drawing from the worlds of heavy metal and electronica, composer David T. Little collaborates with librettist/poet Anne Waldman, Isaura String Quartet, director Lydia Steier and operatic rock band Timur and The Dime Museum. Produced by Beth Morrison Projects.
