DESCRIPTION

Developed in the mid-1980s, Simone Forti’s News Animation Improvisations encompasses the translation of the imagery and language of newspaper reports and newscasts into improvised movement compositions. Listening to and reading the news in the months leading up to Made in L.A. 2012, Forti has produced a series of writings and drawings that she will translate into collaborative improvisational performances done throughout the duration of the exhibition at all three venues.
