Noise Now will partner with local arts organizations, artists, and the community to attract new audiences and better represent the diverse population living in Greater Los Angeles. A Noise Within has hired Jonathan Muñoz-Proulx as the nonprofit arts organization’s first Director of Cultural Programming to lead the initiative.“With Noise Now, we aim to illuminate and activate underrepresented populations, communities of color, young people, and all others not equitably represented at the theatre,” said ANW Artistic Producing Directors Geoff Elliott and Julia Rodriguez-Elliott. “Through partnerships with local organizations, Noise Now will go beyond our traditional programming and open up our campus to dance, contemporary theatre, art exhibits, music, and more. These performances and presentations will activate non-traditional or underutilized spaces throughout the A Noise Within campus.”Noise Now’s first partnership will be with Lineage Performing Arts Center (LPAC), also based in Pasadena, Calif., for Noise Now’s Feb. 25 launch event. LPAC will present a life inspired dance-theater piece on ANW’s main stage titled, Ceiling In The Floor, directed by Marisa Echeverria and choreographed by LPAC Artistic Director Hilary Thomas. Ceiling In The Floor explores the true story of a friendship bound up in art, music, and mental illness. Through journal entries, songs, dances, letters, and a manual for suicide risk assessment, we learn about Hilary and Brandon’s devoted friendship, their mutual love of music, and their struggles to grow together and apart as they balance the pressures of college, life, and Brandon’s increasingly apparent manic depression. The performance will be followed by a question and answer session with mental health professionals, Artistic Director Hilary Thomas, and members of the Lineage Dance Company.Following the performance, Noise Now will celebrate the installation of a contemporary art exhibit, titled “Cosmotarrayas,” by LA artist Carolina Caycedo in the theatre’s main lobby. “Cosmotarrayas” is a series of hanging sculptures assembled with handmade fishing nets collected during the artist’s field research in riverine communities affected by the privatization of water. The nets are intertwined with a variety of objects that Caycedo acquired in a range of locales or that came from her personal archive. Some of the nets were given to the artist by friends or acquaintances in the sites she has visited, while others were purchased in local markets or commissioned by the artist. The “Cosmotarrayas” works are an embodiment of the people the artist has met during her travels and their stories of dispossession and resistance; the series operates as a connector between Caycedo’s activism and community involvement and her studio practice.ANW Director of Cultural Programming Jonathan Muñoz-Proulx said, “Our February launch will be a celebration of community. It will be an opportunity for individuals and peer organizations to come together to celebrate storytelling. Noise Now is our biggest commitment to inviting everyone into the building and offering everyone a ‘seat at the table.’ All are welcome here – this is YOUR theatre.”Since his hire in October of last year, Muñoz-Proulx has been meeting with numerous cultural organizations and artists throughout the Greater Los Angeles community to invite feedback and ideas, and establish a diverse offering at ANW.Future Noise Now events have already been scheduled and added to the 2019 calendar, including Keith Hamilton Cobb’s award-winning solo play, American Moor, shedding light on black identity in America – performed on the set of ANW’s production of Othello on March 27 at 7 p.m., a night of music and spoken word with the Trans Chorus of Los Angeles (TCLA) and Celebration Theatre on April 24 at 7 p.m., and a contemporary dance performance that explores the expressive presence of diverse bodies by Ate9 Dance Company on May 20 at 7 p.m. More events are still in development and will be announced as they are scheduled. In addition to main stage presentations, Noise Now will activate non-traditional or underutilized spaces throughout the ANW campus for its events.Muñoz-Proulx explained, “If you build it, they will not necessarily come. Yes, classics are universal. And yes, free tickets are attractive. But most important is an engaged relationship with our community. The most powerful way to demonstrate commitment to a new partner is to ask them what they want. Let us put your voice onstage, and help us tell this story with you, as opposed to for you.”Noise Now events are designed to be accessible to all audiences. Tickets for Noise Now events will be “choose your price” and can be reserved at ANoiseWithin.org/NoiseNow.

Following the spring 2019 repertory season, the popular and acclaimed ANW production of Noises Off (directed by Julia Rodriguez-Elliott & Geoff Elliott; May 21 – June 9, 2019) returns. KCET is a media sponsor for A Noise Within’s 2018-19 Season. A Noise Within’s repertory theatre season is presented by the S. Mark Taper Foundation.Julia Rodriguez-Elliott said, “Whether they’re in self-exile (The Glass Menagerie), or shunned (Othello), or led astray by hedonistic desires (A Picture of Dorian Gray), or thrust there by the fickle cruelty of fate (Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead) or the gods (Argonautika), all of these characters on the margins of society are fascinating and deeply resonant with anyone who has ever felt left out.”About A Noise WithinA Noise Within has been called “an oasis for those who love classic stories” by Los Angeles Times and is a leading regional producer based in Pasadena, Calif. ANW’s award-winning resident company practices a rotating repertory model at their state-of-the-art, 283-seat performance space.

School bus service axed without warning

By then it was too late to respond as the bus had already completed its last journey.”The email received by Cllr Crowe stated that to compensate for the cancelled service, improvements had been made to the 301 bus service which serves Raheen and the city centre.“A service will leave Westbury at 07.50hrs so passengers will have a scheduled service close to the existing 07.55 hrs time,” the email read.“Students traveling on this service to the Crescent Comprehensive School can alight at the Crescent Shopping Centre Stop which is a short walk from the school. Those attending schools off O’Connell Avenue can disembark at Mallow Street or alternatively board the 304 service that operates every 15 minutes from the City Centre to Raheen via O’Connell Avenue,” the email continued.In response Cllr Crowe alluded to a rumour circulating among “angry” parents that the service had been axed as it was not licensed by the Transport Infrastructure Ireland (TII).The Fianna Fáil councillor urged Bus Éireann to clarify this “as soon as possible” so that the service could be reinstated.last_img read more

Union strikes back at attacks on pensions

first_imgLast week’s annual Bakers Food & Allied Workers Union (BFAWU) conference gave its full backing to the union’s efforts to counter the erosion of final pension schemes that is prevalent across many industry sectors. It also opposed government moves to raise the retirement age.Bakers are being treated no differently to other workers, general secretary Joe Marino told British Baker. But he stressed: “We have to continue campaigning against government attacks on pension rights.”Marino said plans to raise the retirement age were “outrageous”. He was also highly critical of the CBI, whose members have complained they cannot afford the 3% compulsory contribution proposed in the pensions White Paper.There were more than 200 delegates in a total attendance of around 300 at the Bridlington conference. In addition to expressing their concerns over pensions, they heard union president Ron Draper condemn the state of elderly care in the UK. Draper called for free health care at the point of need for everyone, regardless of age. “This is a wealthy country; we have got the money,” he said.last_img read more
