Heritage Square Museum Presents Soliloquy

 

A site-specific, immersive dance experience by South Asian American choreographer Achinta S. McDaniel for Blue13 Dance Company, where audiences are transformed into active participants in this roving indoor/outdoor immersive dance experience, traversing the grounds and historic manors of Heritage Square. Attendees choose their own adventure, immerse themselves in the performance, follow performers while affecting the experience by being able to make choices including selecting the music, shaping the narrative, and choosing who dances the final solo.

The pandemic forced us into loneliness. The sole human connections were through interactions on flat screens. Soliloquy shares individual stories of what it feels like to be shuttered away and disconnected from touch, laughter, and sharing. It also investigates the flattening of human connection to social media and screens. Soliloquy critiques the reification of social media and Zoom as the standard for human interaction, by physically inviting audiences into the homes and lives of strangers.

WHEN:
• Friday, May 31; 8pm
• Saturday, June 1; 8pm
• Sunday June 2; 7pm

WHERE:
Heritage Square Museum
3800 Homer Street
Los Angeles, CA 90031


TICKETS:
• VIP: $100 (includes pre-show reception – 7pm on May 31 and June 1; 6pm on June 2 – with dancers, special experiences, drinks, appetizers)
• Tier 1: $50 (includes appetizers)
• Tier 2: $25 (limited availability)

Mike Zaragossa, best known for hunting Romani criminals for crimes ranging from simple scams to murder, is asked to investigate the case of Angela Howard, a two-year-
old Romani Gypsy who has been missing for two years. She was kidnapped, and the trail is colder than a penguin’s butt. Can Zaragossa find Angela and bring justice to the
Howard family? Based on a real case from the files of the Gypsy Hunter. Written & Directed by Neil L. Yuzuk. The players are: Clement Tng Bowen, Joshua Tracy, Kim Campbell, Mattie Helton, Tom Martin, and Trevor Worthy.
