East/West is a collaborative 60-minute, live, multidisciplinary performance, exploring in movement the geography of gang violence; a metaphor for the madness on our streets around arbitrary territorial divisions. Artists combine their choreography with 18 filmed interviews with a variety of individuals including at-risk young adults, ranking ex-gang members, prisoners, pastors, and victims of crime, which were then used in video projection and original “sound/environments” and rap scores by NYC-based rap artist, Baba Brinkman, for aggressive, pulsating, and hard-edged music.

L.A. based performers, Jones Welsh, Anne-Marie Talmadge, Phillip Wainwright, and Colton PiersonGeiger bring their creative and dynamic movement to tell this "kinetic story"—and offer an extraordinary physical presence. 

East/West strives to give voice to an often marginalized population, bringing their experiences and concerns to the stage with integrity, force, and meaning.  East/West puts the arts at the center of a conversation about this complex issue of gang violence and it's relationship to systemic poverty.  Participants will experience how these difficult topics can be expressed and explored through art and will find the inspiration and motivation to change their lives and even influence a larger community change.

Donor Levels for Fiscal Receiver: Not Man Apart

''As A.J., Munch is spellbinding... As Ajax, Hendry is a physical force on stage...Indelible performances by Munch & Hendry.''
-Jordon Riefe, Hollywood Reporter

''Hauntingly staged by Farmanesh-Bocca. An expert choreographer.''
- Jordon Riefe, Hollywood Reporter

"The Effect is Electrifying. This impassioned staging is worth seeing for the important questions it raises and tries to answer, and how it pries open an issue that has until recently remained firmly closed." 
- Jenny Lower LA WEEKLY
