Perform! Now! Festival
in it's second year promises to be better. With a fundraiser that took place tonight at Human Resources in collaboration with Francois Ghebaly gallery. Ghebaly being a key component to the festival since he collaborated in the birth of Perfrom! Now!.

I did not make it to the fundraiser, but I hope sure you did!!!


I can't think of a more perfect setting than Chinatown-- with all it's charm, it plays great as the background for the so many performance artists who will play, indulge, and subdue it's audience this weekend.


Oh, and don't fear, the event is FREE!!!. Thanks to all the volunteers and organizers for all your hard work, and passion to the arts. I'm quite interested to witness how the local neighborhood, or the tired tourist who will randomly come across the Perform! Now! programming react. I venture, that good times are ahead for those of us who are anticipating the festival, but even greater for those will randomly come across it... That's just my personality, I like random play-- SURPRISES!

I know I'm not missing Skip Arnold's performance on Saturday, or Megan May Daalder's performance: The Closet at Human Resources. And Paul Pescador will also perform, with Chinatown as his background palette. Pescador is one of my favorite artists, but then again the list is never ending. However, there's more... Actual Size Gallery will play host to Haircuts and Popsicles this Saturday: free haircuts and three dollar pops because it's summertime, and who doesn't enjoy popsicles?!


Aaron Wrinkle is Chinatown's Dan Graham, by showing artists in the form of the once John Daniel's gallery. And this Saturday at Dan Graham gallery artist Dorit Cypis will perform: Inside/Outside/In (performer/audience/mirror/dan graham/1975), 2010. Dorit Cypis performance will not be a re-interpretation of Graham's performer/audience/mirror/(1975), but rather a dialogue/exploration of how audience, space, and artist work together to create a performance platform.


On Sunday La Fundacion Wanna Wini will debut as I believe, it's first Los Angeles performance, with a live Skype broadcasting from Mexicali, Mexico. I first heard about these guys when they participated in the MexiCali Biennial 09-10, and I'm happy to hear more, once again.


Now, for a more detailed schedule!. See You There!!!
