Critic’s Pick: REDCAT New Original Works Festival
There is only one thing I can tell you for sure about this week’s program, the second of three, for the New Original Works Festival at REDCAT. It won’t be like last week’s. Or next week’s.
The festival is of emerging works by established cutting-edge local choreographers, dancers, directors, actors, musicians and those that fit between genre cracks. Nothing is really ready, but ready enough to generate considerable curiosity. Some pieces, at least, will have a life, and that usually is enough to sell out the alternative space underneath Walt Disney Concert Hall most nights.
The three new works this week include dancers Oguri and Roxanne Steinberg in Carole Kim’s multimedia “The Singing Head,” said heads being single-cell oceanic organisms; Marsian De Lellis’ tabletop puppetry personifying the Golden Gate Bridge and a baby blanket (they fall in love!); and the Afrofuturism of sound and movement artist d. Sabela grimes. Through Saturday. Read more.
