On January 13, visit Echo Park Lake for Fiesta Perpetua! This FREE community ritual of manifestation was conceived by acclaimed experimental Mexican vocalist Carmina Escobar, who will lead the 40-member Oaxacan youth brass band Maqueos Music.
The performance will take place on floating rafts and at spots surrounding the picturesque lake near Downtown Los Angeles.
Over the course of the afternoon, “performance interventions” will take place on and around the lake, following a mystical algorithmic schedule until sundown. Originally commissioned by Machine Project, this ritualistic performance re-imagines a processional festival as a communal experience that reveals the cross-cultural nature of LA.
Fiesta Perpetua! is part of Pacific Standard Time Festival: Live Art LA/LA.
