Dean Stephan Koplowitz Creates Performances in LA's Metro Stations
Koplowitz driven underground with “Red Line Time”
March 27 2013
We received an intriguing note from our friend Stephan Koplowitz, the Bessie-bearing, Guggenheim-garnering, Alpert-awarded choreographer, who is also Dean of Dance of the Sharon Disney Lund School of Dance at CalArts. Despite all of Steve’s awards and accolades he’s apparently being driven underground. And he seems to like it!
I’m proud to say that the LA Metro has granted us one of the first permits to perform inside their walls at all 14 metro stations on the Red Line. The negotiations were a performance unto itself … but the Metro is looking to the future. Of course, it’s ironic that after living in NYC for 23 years, it’s in LA that I’m making a work in the subways.
