Road Concert on Sunset Boulevard, Los Angeles Road Concerts
At 2pm, Rebeca Hernandez (choreographer) will lead three other dancers in an experimental site-specific performance, with music accompaniment by the experimental duo, Comfort Zone (Breeze Smith, percussion; Oz, Chapman Stick) at the Sunset/Vermont Metro Station in Hollywood.
Los Angeles Road Concerts presents a showing of site-specific projects from over 100 LA artists in unused public outdoor spaces along the entire length of Sunset Boulevard’s 24 miles, from Downtown to the Pacific Ocean. For one day, artists will perform works, display installations, facilitate car pool happenings and make music… in public spaces such as sidewalks, traffic islands, parking lots, as well as inside the audience’s cars as they traverse one of LA’s most iconic boulevards. The audience self-curates, deciding how long they want to spend at each participating artist’s spot, or to skip spots or drive at different speeds between destinations as they journey from one end of Sunset to the other, arriving eventually to a beach reception at the ocean just before sunset. The road concert can easily be experienced by bus, bicycle and walking, and artist-driven carpools are available.
