Winter Wende Salon
The Wende Museum, Culver City, California
February 24, 2012
The Winter Salon was a special evening of theater, an exploratory duet between the performers and the Wende Collection.
COLD WAR: A PERFORMANCE PROJECT is being developed over three years by the Netherlands-based PeerGrouP and the Los Angeles Poverty Department. The finished piece will be presented as part of the Noorderzon Festival in Groningen, the Netherlands, August 16 through 26, 2012. The City of Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs through Cultural Exchange International initiative has supported two phases of this collaboration. Both groups create theater that engages with current social issues, but the communities they work with are very different. PeerGrouP builds projects in rural locations in Drente Province in the North of the Netherlands and LAPD develops projects in the heart of Skid Row, downtown Los Angeles.
Project artists included LAPD: Henriëtte Brouwers, KevinMichael Key, John Malpede; PeerGrouP: Henry Alles, Floris van Delft, Merel van Dijk.
