FLAX Project

The distance is beautiful. La distance la plus courte entre deux points n’est pas une ligne droite

FLAX is teaming up with Grand Park to present an international collaboration and dance performance by French video and performing artist Lola Gonzàlez and Los Angeles-based artists, choreographer Oguri and composer Paul Chavez.

Inspired by the complex landscape of the city, the trailblazing performance entails a traveling processional, which tackles ideas of community, collaboration and the impact of urban living. Sixty performers, a mix of professionals and nonprofessionals, set off from several distinct locations throughout Los Angeles. Echoing recent unrest in this country and the world, the groups march through the corridors of Downtown to gather together at the iconic Grand Park for an epic performance, punctuated by individual actions and gestures as each participant acts out their role.

The performance commences as performers gather at 7:30pm in front of the Civic Center-Grand Park Metro Station on Hill Street between 1st and Temple. They proceed through Grand Park towards Grand Avenue, culminating at the The Arthur J. Will Memorial Fountain.

Prelude Journey: Expand your experience and meet the performers at 6:45pm at one of these four meeting points to follow them on their journey to Grand Park:
