Tongva After Dark continues its first season of cultural programming with a spectacular new site-specific dance work by noted Los Angeles choreographer Holly Rothschild.
It will be presented this Wednesday, Oct. 8 from 7 pm to 8:15 pm. It is free and open to all.
The work, commissioned especially for Tongva by the City of Santa Monica’s Cultural Affairs Division, will traverse five different areas of the park, highlighting its varied natural settings and one-of-a-kind architectural features.
Spectators will be encouraged to follow Rothschild’s dancers into each of the park’s distinctive terrains as she explores the landscape’s extraordinary textures, intimate spaces and urban vistas.
There will be one performance only of this remarkable and highly engaging work.
Tongva After Dark is an ongoing series of intimate and informal events which offer audiences the opportunity to experience this major new addition to Santa Monica’s park system from different points of view.
