Tongva After Dark’s 2015 programming culminates on October 28th with the second annual Wonder Room, an evening of performances by an interdisciplinary group of extraordinary artists who activate the intimate “rooms” of Tongva Park simultaneously. L.A. choreographer Alexx Shilling, the Slovenian duo of guitarist Mak Grgić and soprano Katya Koren, and internationally-known experimental puppetry and object performance group Automata, with artists Janie Geiser, Susan Simpson, Yulya Dukhovny and Chu-Hsuan Chang, will perform. Audiences are invited to stroll through the park to discover the performances at their own pace and in their own order. The program takes advantage of the unusual geography of gardens, winding paths, and urban vistas of the park, and highlights the diversity of small, exquisite spaces designed by James Corner Field Operations, the creative mind behind the High Line in New York.
The program will be presented for one night only by the City of Santa Monica Cultural Affairs Division. The event is free and open to the public.
