Join me on March 9 for a film premiere and performance by RUBBERBANDance at the Luckman (Cal State LA) ...
"Known on the streets of L.A. as Rubberband, Victor Quijada became a dancer in Twyla Tharp's company, later joining Les Grands Ballets Canadiens de Montreal. He started his own dance company, RUBBERBANDance Group, whose fusion of ballet and street dancing has made them sought-after performers at dance festivals throughout North America, Europe and Japan. Quijada's choreography deftly conveys the ardor of violence, tenderness, comedy and tragedy as it reveals the truth about the human condition. See the premiere of the company's eighth short film, Center of Gravity, followed by a live performance and artist-director Q&A."

The event starts at 8:00 pm and we'll plan on meeting up about 7:30 (more on that later). However ...
If you'd like to get together for dinner beforehand, email me with a suggestion for a restaurant that would be convenient to the Luckman. I don't know that area at all.
Also, check the Luckman's site -- http://www.luckmanarts.org/directions/ -- for directions. College campuses can be confusing but, if I remember correctly, this one is pretty straightforward.
If you'd like to carpool, leave a note about that in your RSVP comments and be sure to state your general location.
Hope you can make it!
