Machine this Weekend: June 7th – 9th

EVENT : Asher Hartman – Glass Bang
Friday, June 7th / Saturday, June 8th / Saturday June 15th from 8 – 10:30pm
At a historic home in Laurel Canyon

Update: All performances SOLD OUT! We are currently scheduling more performances for late June, and will offer advance sales to Machine Project members. Stay tuned!

In Glass Bang, artist Asher Hartman’s new experimental musical play, a man becomes so alienated from himself that he is split in two beings, gradually becoming a deity whose creative and destructive impulses have a profound effect on his closest friends. In this two-hour live play, the dialogue unfolds around the viewers who become immersed in the action.

Location will be disclosed to ticketholders. The audience is limited to 20 per performance, so we expect these performances to sell out quickly.

EVENT : David Eng – The Dawning of the Age of Aquariums
Saturday, June 8th at 2:30pm
At Cabrillo Marine Aquarium // 3720 Stephen M. White Drive, San Pedro, CA 90731

David Eng will lead us on a tide pool visit, accompanied by a live string ensemble arranged by Melinda Rice. We will then go to the Cabrillo Marine Aquarium’s auditorium for a brief lecture on the origin story of 19th-century aquaria, after which visitors are free to explore the rest of the Frank Gehry-designed aquarium.
