Expansiveness: Changing Perspective
Arts District Location

EXPANSIVENESS: CHANGING PERSPECTIVE is a multi-media performance merging architecture and dance from MashUp Contemporary Dance company and Curious Minds LA.

Architecture studio CMLA and MashUp Contemporary Dance Company, in collaboration with the A+D Museum and HomeMake Labs, present Expansiveness: Changing perspective. This immersive performance evokes both spatial and social manifestations of expansiveness. The physical and projected environment is a design implementation of CMLA’s ongoing research project Architecture of Effortless Attention, through which the studio is investigating means and methods for producing qualities of mystery and novelty to promote psychological wellness. MashUp’s choreography brings the audience through a narrative of identifying truth among the thoughts we each project upon ourselves and upon each other. The performance explores the potential of people recognizing a problem, considering solutions together, and collectively producing change through the expansion of one small idea. Co-produced by two female-owned organizations, Expansiveness: Changing perspective celebrates Women’s Equality Day with performances on August 24 and 25.
