Los Angeles Performance Practice presents PASSION, a new work “exploring the space that our desire and longing inhabit while rehearsing perseverance.”
Taking Carl Theodor Dreyer’s silent film La passion de Jeanne d’Arc as a point of departure, Rachel Jendrzejewski and Zoe Aja Moore “collaborate to create an embodied investigation of the fraught relationship between feminism and emotion, from Joan of Arc’s day to current political moments.”*
PASSION will be performed by Dorothy Dubrule, Jessica Emmanuel, Brigid Gallagher, Mireya Lucio, and Gabriella Rhodeen—recently seen at Redcat in Paradise Island—and the one-night-only event features recorded excerpts of a live score by Julia Holter for Dreyer’s film, performed by Holter, Corey Fogel, Devin Hoff, Dina Maccabee, and Tashi Wada.
Sunday, August 18.
Doors at 6 pm, performance at 7 pm.
The Theatre at Ace Hotel
929 South Broadway, downtown Los Angeles.
