PASSION in Los Angeles on 8/18
You’re invited! Please join us for a special glimpse at PASSION, a new performance exploring the space that our desire and longing inhabit while rehearsing perseverance.
Responding to the iconic silent film The Passion of Joan of Arc, Rachel Jendrzejewski and Zoe Aja Moore collaborate to create an embodied investigation of the fraught relationship between feminism and emotion, from Joan of Arc’s day to current political moments.
For this special one-night event, PASSION takes over the opulent Theatre at the Ace Hotel in downtown Los Angeles. In its heyday, silent film was often seen as a congregation, a gathering of an audience for a nonverbal event that led to a spiritual experience. PASSION gathers a congregation in a former silent movie palace, but with no film and no iconography — ultimately inviting us to face each other and ourselves.
Featuring: Dorothy Dubrule, Jessica Emmanuel, Brigid Gallagher, Mireya Lucio, Gabriella Rhodeen
Also featuring recorded excerpts of a live score by Julia Holter for Dreyer’s film, performed by Julia, Corey Fogel, Devin Hoff, Dina Maccabee, and Tashi Wada.
