This season marks the first inclusion of a curatorial artist in residence at the Center for the Art of Performance (CAP) UCLA, and we are thrilled to announce Miranda Wright and Los Angeles Performance Practice have received this honor. The Center’s goal is to provide time and space for the incubation and progression of new work from a like-minded local and emerging curatorial voice.
This ongoing residency gives CAP UCLA the opportunity to simultaneously support younger artists working in L.A., and to learn more about their practice and purpose. Their hope is to discover where the CAP mission and vision overlaps with these artists, and explore we might be able to collaborate as artists and presenters of contemporary performance within the LA arts community.
Miranda Wright has selected the first round of LAPP artists to participate, all of whom have new work in development, with existing relationships to Los Angeles Performance Practice. We are thrilled for this special opportunity, as it paves the way for a more supportive development process with local partners, leading to exciting new work with the potential to premiere in Los Angeles with the Live Arts Exchange (LAX) Festival or a partnering presenter, and increases the possibility of national and international presentations in the future.
