Anicca

Impermanence: the natural tendency towards change. One embodies the slow shift of change guided by a soft, rounded presence, the other embodies quick-shifting unpredictability with staccato movement and angular shapes. Moving along as if mirror images of each other, they overcome the first three evils: ignorance, attachment, and aversion, only to be drawn back to their center. With neglect, they continue to search for stillness, finding that the fragility of life in these bodies is never comfortable.

Angel's Playground

Angel's Playground explores the hidden treasures that lie within a city of relentless culture. Los Angeles sent her angels down upon this group of dancers to play on her grounds, reserved for those who seek to entertain their imaginations with the zest of Pacific fashion and Urban art. Their task from Lady L.A.: recreate this place and make it a funshouse for movement and joy.

Come Together


A group of kindred souls meets for the first time. After connecting with the self, each soul falls in love with the idea of belonging. Stubborn souls may show resistance, but unity is inevitable. The magnetic energy of the collective love is more powerful than any soul who chooses to stand alone. The souls meet out of curiosity for this place where water once flowed relentlessly. They see it as their responsibility to bring life back to this now barren concrete land. As each new character appears they bring in their unique energy to the place: first serenity, then strength, playfulness, determination, and finally grace arrives. Together they bring life to the lifeless.

Now filled with urban decay, torn up furniture, wall Graffiti, and streams unsettling whispers from inside the ruins. Three spirits have been trapped in this purgatory for ages, will they be able to escape their curse and journey on to the road of rebirth?
