Bootleg is a 1930’s warehouse and a home for Los Angeles artists
who work in theater, music, dance, and film. Bootleg provides
artistic support and production resources to help these artists
create original and daring interdisciplinary work. Combining art
forms creates work that is surprising, unexpected, exciting and
reflective of life in Los Angeles, a city where the boundaries
are elastic, and not bound by tradition. Bootleg offers Los
Angeles a celebration of itself.
Opening May 17
An original dream play that links the world of women in Toulouse
Lautrec's paintings to the men who loved them. Through
words, movement and love the divine feminine of the past gains
strength as a surreal absinthe night of drinking opens up a
world that will enchant, challenge, frighten and inspire. Join
an in-house group of Bootleg artists as we explore the art,
performance, love, life and the women who played roles
throughout it all.
Based on research of the period by Bootleg Artistic Director,
Alicia Adams, and created by some of the theater artists that
call Bootleg home, including Alicia Adams, Kirk Wilson, Jessica
Hanna, Michael Dunn, Will Watkins, Kera Arman and Lulu Brud,
Adam Flemming & Francois-Pierre Couture. Directed & Conceived by
Bridge the Gap between waking and dreaming.
