This week’s Happenings 5.19-20
The weather is getting warm and we’re starting to get ready for those restless summer evenings. Luckily for Audrey readers, there are blooming possibilities for the movie-goers, dance buffs, and hungry tasters in all of us. Check out what is happening now and around the web this week.
JESUS HENRY CHRIST
Where: Theatres Nation Wide
From Asian American director, Dennis Lee, comes “Jesus Henry Christ,” an indie comedy based on the Oscar-winning student short that Lee made in 2003. Lee’s second feature film stars Toni Collette, Michael Sheen, and Executive Producer Julia Roberts.
The story follows ten-year-old Henry James Hermin; a boy conceived in a petri-dish and raised by a feminist mother who follows a string of Post-It notes in hopes of finding his biological father.
Heidi Duckler Dance Theatre Presents: Expulsion
When: Saturday May 19th 4pm and 7pm (Korea Town)
Sunday May 20th 4pm and 7pm (Little Ethiopia)
Where: Korea Town/Little Ethiopia. 3400 W. 3rd Street, Los Angeles CA. 90020
On May 19th (4pm and 7pm), Heidi Duckler Dance Theatre will present Expulsion featuring Kim Eung Hwa Korean Dance Company and supported by the Korean Cultural Center. Expulsion is a public art performance boldly danced on three stories of scaffolding weaving the cultural stories of exile, survival, and adaptation.
Presented free to the public, Expulsion will be performed in a vacant lot, for the intersection and convergence of the Korean and Greater Los Angeles communities. Performances will also be accompanied by cross cultural youth workshops and panel discussions.
It will probably make you hungry and leave you craving you-know-what, but these short trailers on a web series about “a group of geeky teenagers trying to survive high school with slightly deleterious consequences,” is definitely intriguing.
