Human Resources’ Grand Re-Opening May Day Event
Celebrating the Performative Arts
Los Angeles, California, April 15, 2011 - On April 30, 2011, Human Resources officially re-opens at its new Chinatown location, the former Cottage Home Gallery. On the eve of May Day, the re-opening event celebrates the inclusion of performance diversity with a full program of innovative theater, dance, performance art and music. The performance program begins with the dance collective, WIFE, founded and choreographed by Jasmine Albuquerque, Kristin Leahy, and Nina McNeely. Multi-faceted artist and performer, Asher Hartman, whose work engages a wide range of mediums including theater, painting and video, follows with a presentation of his thirty minute play, “The All Stars of Non-Violet Communication.” Experimental prog rock duo, Totally Serious, comprised of Jesse Appelhans (Modern Drummer Magazine’s Top Ten Prog Drummer) and bassist, Eric Kiersnowski, plays a set. Artist Paul Waddell, who has shared his boundary-pushing interactive performance nationally, also performs. Waddell is followed by the uplifting musical sounds of artist and musician Daniela Sea, Will Schwartz (of Imperial Teen), Patty Schemel and Bo Boddie Band. The program ends with a dance performance choreographed by widely acclaimed Ryan Heffington featuring the Ladyboys of Sweaty Sundays. A homemade soda by Eden Batki will be available for purchase throughout the evening. Doors open at 7pm. Admission is free.
Human Resources’ annual May Day event draws upon the communal and celebratory cultural themes of May Day, to promote a festive atmosphere with a spirit of inclusion. Human Resources was founded by a team of creative individuals who seek to broaden engagement with contemporary and conceptual art, with an emphasis on performative and underexposed modes of expression. Human Resources is not-for-profit and seeks to foster widespread public appreciation of the performative arts by encouraging maximum community access. Human Resources also serves as a point of convergence for diverse and disparate art communities to engage in conversation and idea-sharing promoting the sustainability of non-traditional art forms.
