Highways Performance Space presents American Standard: A Story of Enough, written by and starring Lilly Bright. Directed by award-winning soloist performer, Valerie Hager, American Standard will run from Thursday, September 19 through Saturday, September 28, 2019.
This original solo show is based on Bright’s true life story of surviving a near two-decade battle with bulimia and various “not-enough” demons, propelling her on an often comical, always poignant search for a cure, resulting in discovery of a path to imperfect wholeness and, ultimately, the courage to finally feel enough.
Lilly Bright is a writer, performer, and filmmaker living in Los Angeles since 2003. Her film career includes the production and distribution of award-winning features and documentaries under the banners of Curiously Bright Entertainment and Arthouse Films. In addition to teaching group classes in the Feldenkrais Method, Bright currently apprentices with Ohad Naharin, his movement language, Gaga, and the Batsheva Dance Company in Tel-Aviv.
6 shows to choose from; three per weekend on Thursday, Friday & Saturday. And one on Mon. Sep. 23 @ 8:30pm. There is no show on Thursday September 26.
All shows but one are scheduled for 8:30pm. On the first Saturday (Sep. 21) there will be a matinee at 2:00pm instead of an evening show.
Highways Performance Space is located at The 18th Street Arts Center 1651 18th Street, Santa Monica, CA 90404.
Tickets are $25 for general admission and $15 for students.
