Performance at 7PM
Growing up in Argentina and living itinerantly in Los Angeles as an adult, the palm tree has for Lamelas always symbolized home, being both familiar and nostalgic, yet similar from place to place. He has often spoken of the awkwardness of palms and how they possess almost human characteristics. In Signaling (2012), two potted palm trees placed in a UAM gallery will be activated by contemporary dancers who respond to them as living things bound by gravity. Newly choreographed, this performance at the UAM will include dancers from the CSU Long Beach Department of Dance.
