Described as “a hub of experimental theater, dance, solo drama and other multimedia performance” by the Los Angeles Times, Highways Performance Space is Southern California’s boldest center for new performance. And it’s right here in Santa Monica at the 18th Street Arts Center!
Now in its 24th year, the nonprofit promotes the development of socially involved artists and art forms; relying on grants, private foundations and individual contributions to support what ticket sales cannot.
Highways continues to be an important alternative cultural center, encouraging radical artists from diverse communities to present innovative new works.
Leo Garcia — an award-winning playwright, actor, filmmaker, producer, teacher and activist — has served as Artistic Director since 2003, developing more than 650 performance works!
“I’m aligned with Highways’ commitment to diversity, the development of new works, the exploration of new forms of performance and the First Amendment,” Garcia said. “We contribute to culture and society by affecting progressive change through performance.
“There’s no place I’d rather be.”
Tonight at Highways is Exit Overland, the second part of a multimedia, interdisciplinary series featuring live and virtual performances from 20 participants with varied artistic backgrounds.
