Presented as part of Pacific Standard Time Festival: Live Art LA/LA
LA-based performers Rubén Martínez and Raquel Gutiérrez host VARIEDADES, an interdisciplinary performance that brings together music, spoken word, theater, comedy and the visual arts, loosely based on the Mexican vaudeville shows of early 20th century Los Angeles where Martínez’s grandparents performed in a musical duo—approaching history in an interdisciplinary fashion, with song and comedy and performance art, with political and intellectual and aesthetic depth. The evening, produced and curated by Marcus Kuiland-Nazario, features performances by Alice Bag, Nao Bustamante with Dynasty Handbag and Karen Tongson, Rafa Esparza, Selene Luna, Cheech and Natasha Marin, Dorian Wood and others.
