Presented as part of Pacific Standard Time Festival: Live Art LA/LA
Floating rafts on picturesque Echo Park Lake become mobile stages for FIESTA PERPETUA!, a community ritual of manifestation led and conceived by acclaimed experimental Mexican vocalist Carmina Escobar with the 40-member Oaxacan youth brass band Maqueos Music, conducted by Yulissa Maqueos, and celebrated dancer/choreographer Oguri. Throughout the afternoon, performance interventions take place on and around the lake, following a mystical algorithmic schedule until sundown. Originally commissioned by Machine Project, Escobar’s ritualistic performance re-imagines a processional festival as a communal experience that reveals the syncretic, cross-cultural nature of LA.
