Photo Flash: Sneak Peek at La Jolla Playhouse's WoW Festival, 10/3

La Jolla Playhouse, nationally-renowned for its commitment to the development of new work and new theatrical forms, is pleased to announce additional projects for its inaugural Without Walls (WoW) Festival of site-based work, running October 3 - 6, 2013. This one-of-a-kind Festival will showcase artists and events occurring simultaneously in and around the Playhouse Theatre District, presented by the Playhouse as well as partner institutions UC San Diego (UCSD) and the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego (MCASD). Tickets (free to $25) and a full schedule for the WoW Festival will be available in August by visiting www.LaJollaPlayhouse.org or by calling (858) 550-1010. Check out a sneak peek below!

In addition to works announced this past January (below), the Playhouse's WoW Festival will also feature seven new works by faculty and students in the UCSD Departments of Theatre & Dance and Music; three new works commissioned by MCASD by acclaimed performance artists James Luna, Kate Gilmore and Jacolby Satterwhite; a co-production of Counterweight, by Jennifer Barclay, directed by Delicia Turner-Sonnenberg, with Playhouse's 2009 Resident Theatre Company MOXIE Theatre, and renowned installation artist Brian Lobel's Carpe Minuta Prima(recently mounted by the Playhouse at the San Diego Fringe Festival).

The WoW Festival will feature nearly 20 site-specific works, taking place over four days around the Playhouse/UCSD Theatre District and environs. Inspired by Europe's city-wide theatre festivals, the WoW Festival takes theatre outside the confines of four walls and places it in unexpected and exciting locations, shining a national spotlight on San Diego as it brings site-based work never before seen in the States to our community. The Festival will serve as a cultural and artistic hub, featuring a vibrant Festival Village with complimentary artist talks, food trucks, beer garden, live music and free public performances. The Village will be a space where artists and patrons mingle, where people from different parts of the city meet and exchange ideas, the place to break bread and toast to new friends. As the first of what will hopefully be a biennial event, the WoW Festival is a perfect fit for San Diego - an innovative, outdoor artistic event for a burgeoning arts city.
