Livestreaming a Performance: Downtown Variety: Mexico Edition

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 present Downtown Variety: Mexico Edition livestreaming on the global, commons-based peer produced HowlRound TV network at howlround.tv.

This event has been rescheduled. Updates coming soon.

La MaMa and CultureHub team up with Tareke Ortiz to create a special edition of Downtown Variety, an online live performance series that features short acts of dance, music, theatre, new media, comedy, A/V performance, and more. Downtown Variety brings La MaMa's 1960s café aesthetic to a virtual platform that links performers and audiences in real time across distance.

Downtown Variety: Mexico Edition marks a moment of return, as life begins to open back up, and we find that things aren’t the same as before. Artists in Mexico City will open a portal to an in-studio audience at CultureHub in New York City, adding a new dimension to the normally online-only performance.

A small audience will be welcomed into the CultureHub New York studio to watch Downtown Variety: Mexico Edition. All audience members joining us in person must be fully vaccinated and wear a mask. Purchase a ticket to reserve your spot.

To watch the livestream tune into culturehub.org/watch. RSVP for free to receive a reminder to watch the performance.

Downtown Variety is presented within La MaMa and CultureHub’s Experiments in Digital Storytelling Program. Downtown Variety is powered by LiveLab, a browser-based media-router for collaborative performance developed by CultureHub.
