PORT CAPA, presented by Dany Naierman, is an exploration of the Port of Los Angeles and surrounding areas. This encounter comprises outdoor multimedia installations and a faux-tour that manifests a threshold between the visible and invisible; a zone where ships in the night, cranes in the distance, and hundreds of thousands of containers move in a symphony. Founded on a massive technological and human effort, Capa, Spanish for “layers,” results in an abstracted landscape guided by puppetry and kinetics.
Automatons, kinetic sculptures, and a surprising landscape filled with layers in motion take an audience through an archeological exploration of exciting
dimensions on the grounds of the Angels Gate Cultural Center.
PORT CAPA is the second phase of a performance project that intersects industrial automation, thresholds, and possible futures.
PORT CAPA is part of Coastal/Border at Angels Gate Cultural Center, an exhibition of original site-responsive performance and installation work with corresponding public programming curated by Raquel Gutiérrez and Martabel Wasserman.
Entrance is FREE and all are welcome!
