Two Local Art Organizations Are Making Magic This Summer

The Distillery Gallery presents Make Reality Magic Again, A Retrospective Exhibition of the Voyeuges Series & Public Premiere Screening of Episode III. Reception and screening are Thursday, August 16, 2018 from 7:00 pm to 10:00 pm. 

Voyeuges involves a cameraman and musical ensemble observing the street from a row of second story windows, creating together cinematic footage and an improvised musical score in response to either the happenstance occurrences on the block, or improvised public performances and installations by members of the ensemble. The footage and accompanying live music are cut down to a short movie with a hint of narrative arc. The mood leans naturally towards mystery and suspense, and sways from feelings of daydreaming to mundanity to absurdity, madness and back again - a weird and beautiful form of movie entertainment.

Make Reality Magic Again is on view through August 18th.  The Distillery Gallery is located at 516 E 2nd St.

The Fort Point Theatre Channel takes you on tour with Jose Rivera's Cloud Tectonics
Cloud Tectonics is a humorous time-bending love story written by Academy Award-nominated José Rivera. Celestina, a hitchhiker whose pregnancy is lasting over two years, and Aníbal, a baggage handler at LAX, meet in the rain for an unforgettable and life-altering encounter in the backdrop of a post-apocalyptic Los Angeles. Sometimes our paths are meant to overlap and diverge simultaneously.

These special workshop performances feature live music and Foley effects by L.A.-based musician Olivia Brownlee and is presented by actor/director Jaime Carrillo in association with Fort Point Theatre Channel.
