NO)ONE. ART HOUSE feat. AKUA and Anthony Calonico
No)one. Art House premieres a new site-specific piece for the Getty's fountains choreographed by Samantha Blake Goodman. Moving within the water and across travertine surfaces, dancers will react to the elements and the geometric architectural forms while soundtracked by ambient sounds generated by soulful vocalist and electronic musician Akua accompanied by trumpeter Anthony Calonico. This performance is the latest in a series of commissions No)one. Art House has premiered at Los Angeles arts institutions including the California African American Museum, Hauser & Wirth, and the Skirball Cultural Center, in addition to a set of unique collaborations with Solange's Saint Heron collective.
