What is RADAR L.A.?.
June 14 – June 19, 2011
When Theatre Communications Group announced its 50th anniversary conference would take place in 2011 in Los Angeles, Ca., a festival in the works for nearly five years set a date. RADAR L.A., an international festival of contemporary theater, launched on Tuesday. The five-day event features ensembles from Chile, Mexico, Japan, and Australia, as well as Los Angeles-based artists.
For an overview, Laura Spencer talked to co-directors Mark Murphy, REDCAT; Diane Rodriquez, Center Theatre Group (CTG); Mark Russell, Under the Radar festival; and Olga Garay, the executive director of the City of Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs (DCA).
