L@TE: Friday Nights @ BAM/PFA
Machine Project Presents Confuse-a-tron
(Doors 5 p.m., DJ 6:30 p.m.)
Programmed by Mark Allen
Confuse-a-tron, programmed by Founder and Executive Director of Machine Project Mark Allen, will be an ecstatic workshop mashup. In keeping with Machine Project’s practice of producing events that use hands-on engagement to make rarefied knowledge accessible, the evening will feature simultaneous drop-in sessions on making kimchi, converting melons into amplified drums, plant cloning, and the application (and styling) of tranimal drag makeup. Machine Project is a nonprofit performance and installation space investigating art, technology, natural history, science, music, literature, and food in a disheveled storefront in the Echo Park neighborhood of Los Angeles.
