The second edition of Radar L.A. -- an international theater festival that takes place mostly in downtown Los Angeles -- will feature 18 stage productions from companies around the world as well as some prominent local groups.
The full line-up for the Sept 24-Oct. 1 fest, which was announced Tuesday, will include theater organizations from Asia, Europe, New Zealand and Latin America.
Radar first launched in 2011 as a way for local audiences to experience global theater companies alongside homegrown talent. The new edition of the biennial event is organized by REDCAT at Walt Disney Concert Hall and the California Institute of the Arts, in partnership with the Center Theatre Group.
This year's line-up features co-presentations that were previously announced by other groups -- including Complicite's production of "Shun-kin" with the Center for the Art of Performance at UCLA; "Prometheus Unbound" at the Getty Villa; and Roger Guenveur Smith's show about Rodney King at the Kirk Douglas Theatre.
