Produced by Los Angeles Performance Practice and the Bootleg Theater, the first ever Live Arts Exchange pulled contemporary theater and dance, film/video, animation, punk opera, and party into one space. LAX 2013 featured work from Early Morning Opera, Show Box LA, Poor Dog Group, and Chi-wang Yang, with special events with Timur & the Dime Museum, Zoe Aja Moore, and Miwa Matreyek.
