Greenway Go!

140px-go-GCTGreenway GO was designed to provide access to and engagement in the arts to the Los Angeles community. By building on current initiatives, we envision the program as a vital entry point for students and the community to experience a variety of art events for free or for a very low cost. Greenway GO is part of a larger, evolving effort to engage in creative placemaking, accessibility, and true community building through the arts. As Greenway continues to grow and explore a new model for how arts, education and social enterprise can work together to help organizations remain both relevant and economically viable, it is simultaneously important that we find ways to include access points for community members who may be shut out by traditional pricing, location and lack of connection to the art itself.

Our current assets for this initiative are:

  1. The Greenway Court Theatre – Greenway curates a season of theatrical experiences at that include co-productions, original works and curated presented offerings.
  2. Melrose Trading Post – art-based marketplace held every Sunday at Fairfax High School. Greenway’s signature social enterprise program.
  3. Da’ Poetry Lounge is a low-cost, open mic’ poetry and spoken word event produced every Tuesday night, and is the largest, longest-running and most diverse weekly spoken word event in the country, engaging poets of all ages and backgrounds in this standing-room only event. DPL served as one of the inspirations for Russell Simmons’ Tony-awarding winning Def Poetry Jam.
  4. InkSlam – an annual festival of workshops and poetry competitions for all ages, that attracts local and national poets to this popular, three-day event.

Tell Me I’m Pretty (Living in Cacophony)

TMIP-poster

Tell Me I’m Pretty (Living with Cacophony) Written and Performed by Joshua Silverstein Directed by Diana Wyenn with musicians Gerry Doot, Merrick J Woodard, and Erik Hallsey With side-splitting humor and raw power, performance artist Joshua Silverstein returns to Greenway to deliver an explosive mix of storytelling, spoken word, vocal percussion, and hip-hop. Backed by a live band, Silverstein layers a series of playful and riveting narratives—full of humor, humanity, and wit—grounded in personal experience, and nuanced by the complexities and contradictions surrounding race, gender and, poverty in America. Plus, he reveals what it would have been like if Buster Keaton could beatbox AND explains why he’s the ideal biracial Batman. Boom!

Reclining Nude On La Cienega

RNonLCposter

RECLINING NUDE ON LA CIENEGA

a handpainted story about life, love, and finding a comfortable place to lie down.

Reclining Nude on La Cienga is a funny, touching (and colorful!) journey into the bewildering abyss of romance and family relationships–a hilariously insightful whirl of observations, truths, discoveries and brushstrokes about the absurdities and calamities that is life and the free-for-all that’s growing up.  Part waif, part green beret, Jann Karam flits, frets and holds forth as she paints the story of her life: her childhood in Superior, Arizona; the ongoing (dumbfounding!) quandary of family; her failed relationships (on both coasts); and throughout it all, her quest to create a utopian artists’ colony rife with joyful possibility…and carrots.  It’s about finding peace in a world of chaos — a universal story of life, love, and finding a comfortable place to lie down.

RIPE

ripe-poster

“The voluptuous Wendy Hammers is sexy and, well… ripe. And it’s contagious! You are laughing or crying throughout this show, and when it’s over (all too soon) you walk out feeling wonderful about your own body, and maybe even appreciating it’s so-called flaws. For me, that was some kind of miracle.”

~ Tracy Newman,
Emmy winner and co-creator of ABC’s “According to Jim”

“A testament to Spirit alive. Delight personified.”

~ Ann Buxie, ‘
Producer, “Tales By the Sea”

“Ripe blew me away with Hammers’ talent, genius and adorability (so sue me, I made up a word). Laughed out loud and was moved to tears. Bravo to this hilarious stand up, brilliant storyteller and accomplished actress. I couldn’t have had a more fun night.

~ Monica Piper,
Comedian and Emmy Award Winning Writer

Psyche

PsychePostcardFRONT_v3

In this modern retelling of the ancient Greek myth about the “original” princess, PSYCHE: A Modern Rock Opera is a stylistic musical hybrid of post-modernism and rock.

A theatrical fever dream where the human princess Psyche and the god Eros fall wildly in love, but Aphrodite and Psyche’s evil sisters may have other plans.  When Psyche is spurned from her home, she is thrust into a netherworld where she is faced with challenge after daunting challenge in order to find her place in the world and of course, true love.  

But will she survive?  Will she go the distance to overcome the wrath of Aphrodite to take her place in the universe as a true hero who will change the world and the very nature of love forever?

Good Bobby

good_bobby

Good Bobby recounts the formative adult years (1958-1964) of Robert F. Kennedy, one of history’s great “what ifs.” From his battles with Jimmy Hoffa on the Labor Rackets Committee to his stint as Attorney General to the assassination of John Kennedy, RFK struggles to find his own voice and step out of the impossibly enormous shadows created by a domineering father, a larger-than-life brother and the expectations of a mother who forever believes in the man he ultimately becomes.
