AmaTerra

Using dance, circus arts and aerial arts under a blacklight, AmaTerra captivates the imagination, uplifts the spirit and inspires audiences of all ages. Using illuminated LED and UV-reactive wings, hoops, and aerial silks, AmaTerra is a show about one woman’s journey to discover who she is while saving the butterfly forest in which she lives.  AmaTerra tells a tale of personal transformation with glowing butterflies, a magical forest and a high-flying aerialist – something for everyone!
In AmaTerra, Mother Nature is a young woman who lives in a forest where millions of the monarch butterflies migrate to each winter. She wields the power of the five elements – earth, water, fire, air, and the mysterious fifth element – to plant new trees and help the forest grow. One day, something threatens to destroy their home. In trying to save the forest, Mother Nature herself is hurt and forgets who she is. She must call upon the elements to help her remember what power she has to save her forest home. To protect the monarch butterflies, she must undergo a metamorphosis of her own!

SWARM CELL – Diversity & Disability Talk Back w/ Panel

DATE COMING SOON! | PERFORMANCE at 8PM

SIGN-INTERPRETED PERFORMANCE & TALK BACK (ASL)

POST-PERFORMANCE talk back w/ panel

IMG_7700 copyJoin cast members of the world premiere play SWARM CELL and local performing arts leaders as they discuss visibility, access, and opportunities for all types of audiences and artists. How do we answer the call by providing everyone with an active role in the performing arts and entertainment? Representation in the arts is currently a huge hot topic and we want to explore what the word “diversity” means to a variety of individuals that make careers within the field.

What has been done? What can we do more of? Who do we want to see more of? Why does a diverse representation of human-beings and experiences matter?

SWARM CELL, a play starring an all female cast of Latina and African American women that challenges audiences to take a look at their world and answer the questions “Are you a queen bee or a worker bee?, or “How does I become we?,” is the ideal backdrop for this conversation.

Join us for the sign-interpreted performance and post-show talk-back. DATE COMING SOON! Get $10 General Admission Tickets with the code TALKBACK.

Now Blaetz and Bruffy are enthused by SWARM CELL, which has previews January 28-29, and opens January 30 for a five-week run. The early word is that this entertaining production, which tells a tale of “a brave new world of womanhood and identity,” is one of the first must-see events in the Los Angeles 2016 theatrical calendar … READ THE WHOLE ARTICLE HERE.
