Peter + Alex are having a public conversation !
If anyone reading this blog is near enough to LA (or if you know people interested in the role of art in contemporary society living in LA) - this event is a must ... two inspiring, eloquent, committed light-workers. Over the last ten years they have both, at different times, inspired, supported, pushed + encouraged me.
Here is the blurb :
Internationall renowned theater, opera and festival director Peter Sellars spends an evening with one-time actor and mental health practictioner Alex Miramontes sharing with us their lively ongoing 10 year discussion about the artistic creative process, their respective professions and the efficacy of art in a global community. Miramontes worked with Peter Sellars on several projects: The Screens (1998) The Story of a Soldier (1999) and El Nino (2000) composed by John Adams
