This summer, Artbound celebrated its one year anniversary and finished its second season of programming. Season 2 took our exploration of Southern California's cultural landscape to new heights: from the banks of the Tijuana river, to the depths of the Guadalupe-Nipomo Dunes, the vast lands of Antelope Valley's high desert, and beyond. We witnessed art in museums and on city sidewalks, in tiny studios and under the spotlights of a stage. Since January, we've published 225 new articles, produced 14 short documentaries, and broadcast three hour-long television episodes.
Today, we look back at five of this season's most memorable articles on dance. California dancers are constantly pushing the boundaries of performance, whether it be at the Los Angeles Ballet or inside a 1961 Oasis trailer. Enjoy!
Heidi Duckler's latest performance, "Expulsion," positions her dancers throughout scaffolding in Boyle Heights.
What if dance could be any movement, executed by anybody, anywhere? Trisha Brown blurs the boundary between dance and the rhythms and movements of everyday life.
