Body Weather Laboratory presents Flower of the Season 2022. Continuing a 19-year tradition of minimal yet encompassing use of space and theatricality, this year’s performances will feature Japanese dancer/ choreographer Oguri (Venice, CA) collaborates with dancer Andrés Corchero (Catalonia, Spain) in an evening length work inspired by Ray Bradbury’s “Fahrenheit 451” the dystopian fable in which fireman burn books rather than put out fires and ignorant complacency robs humanity of spiritual freedom and personal dignity.

Today, 70 years after Bradbury’s prescient tale, written while he lived in Venice, CA, Oguri creates in the same neighborhood, and while celebrating freedom of expression, the dance pokes at a culture of anti-intellectualism, fake news, anti-depressants and hedonistic pursuits.

This project is funded by City of Los Angeles, Department of Cultural Affairs, Los Angeles County, Department of Arts and Culture and California Arts Council.

Support from Friends of Venice Library and Electric Lodge.
