Downtown Variety: Take 9
Bringing La MaMa's 1960s café aesthetic to a virtual platform that links performers and audiences in real time across distance
La MaMa and CultureHub presented Downtown Variety: Take 9 livestreamed on the global, commons-based peer produced HowlRound TV network at howlround.tv on Friday 22 May 2020 at 5 p.m. PDT (San Francisco, UTC-7) / 7 p.m. CDT (Chicago, UTC-5) / 8 p.m. EDT (New York, UTC-4).
La MaMa and CultureHub team up to create Downtown Variety, a weekly online live performance series that will feature short acts of dance, music, theater, new media, comedy, A/V performance, and more. Responding to calls for social isolation, Downtown Variety brings La MaMa's 1960s café aesthetic to a virtual platform that links performers and audiences in real time across distance. La MaMa and CultureHub use emerging technologies to create a new venue for artistic expression that questions how art can function and how we as a society can survive challenging periods of history.
Artists for this weekend:
Alberto Del Saz, Jon Kinzel, Jerome Ellis, Víctor Martínez,
LizdeLise, Mallory Catlett with Jim Findlay, G Lucas Crane, Keith Skretch
with video art by Magnum Foundation artists Fabiola Ferrero, Juanita Escobar, and Arlene Mejorado
Hosted by Mattie Barber-Bockelman
