Come early to Dance Gotham at the Skirball Center and encounter a private public performance where you least expect it, and be part of the cast of the greater moving public. Tap into the "Sound Bar" (10ft red counter in the Lower Lobby) to frame the playful and provocative acts of the performers, and encapsulate yourself with your own private soundtrack amidst a sea of strangers waiting for the performance to begin.

Zach Morris and Tom Pearson's UNDERCURRENTS & EXCHANGE
During Intermission - Saturday at 9pm, Sunday at 8pm
LOCATION: Skirball Center's Grand Staircase and Lower Lobby
Morris and Pearson will present a short, site-specific work created for the Skirball Center Staircase and lobby area.
