MOCA – STEP AND REPEAT – This Saturday night October 4th!

” Step and Repeat is a multi-disciplinary program of performance art, music, comedy, and poetry and marks MOCA’s return to live arts programming, a crucial part of the museum’s historical identity. Stretching across four Saturdays this fall, Step and Repeat will present voices from across the United States, with a special focus on the burgeoning performance communities in Los Angeles. Step and Repeat builds on the success of MOCAtv, which over the past two years has transcended its original role as a producer of online content to become one of the most daring digital platforms for performance art, comedy, music, video art, and youth culture. The goal of Step and Repeat is to celebrate the hybrid, convergent, nascent spirit of art today, to collapse some categories, and to explore new directions in artistic practices. ”

This Saturday night is the last of four Saturday nights at the MOCA Geffen Contemporary and it is so worth going to. I want last Saturday night and it was amazing. Every hour on the hour from 6 PM to 11 PM there are different performances on a series of stage areas inside the building and then outside in the plaza in front of the museum there are bars, food trucks and amazing dee jays playing music as well as the best people watching in LA in recent history. This is a scene, this is art and this is LA now. Curated by Emma Reeves who is also the force behind MOCA TV this event will be back again I am sure. What a way to utilize this great space between exhibitions. What a way to bring together an amazing mix of people or all ages, demographics, art, fashion, music and just good energy. Make sure you go!!
