This Spring, Dominic Walsh Dance Theatre premieres Victor Frankenstein based on Mary Shelley’s classic novel and co-conceived by local writer Addie Tsai. Afternoon of a Faun Walsh (above) is one of the dances we can expect to see this season from this extraordinary local dance company.
David Sullivan’s Fugitive Emissions on view at Lawndale Art Center through Friday explores the hidden life of pertochemical production. Through his animated paintings, he addresses the issues of our dependence on oil. Sullivan explores the intertwined relationship between the petrochemical industry and the communities along the gulf coast. Sullivan is inspired by petrochemicals seeping into the lives of Gulf Coast residents through the Mississippi delta. The animated brushstrokes beautifully penetrate each other in these living canvases creating a visceral manifestation of the problems of a self-destructive world. The beauty of the work demands us to find solutions.
