"Dec. 15 and 16 2017 at 8 pm, 70 dancers from the California Institute of the Arts (CalArts) presented this massive ensemble performance on the steps and sidewalk surrounding the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Downtown Los Angeles. Hhumann demonstrates how movement can bring urban, public spaces to life and features the entire student body of CalArts Dance.
This performance is about these young dancers who joined CalArts in June. It’s about youth, enthusiasm and pain. CalArts want to transform L.A.’s streets, and architecture into a stage for dance. This performance is a gift, the first of many public events that will be done in the city. Dance is here now, a way of connecting the city of L.A. to (Cal)Arts." - Dimitri Chamblas
HHUMANN premiered at the Walt Disney Concert Hall and was later performed at Hauser and Wirth.
