Though the event is official "sold out", a limited amount of free tickets may again be reserved beginning Tuesday, January 17 to see The LAFMS Shoe perform at the Getty Center as part of the kick off of its performance festival on Friday, January 20, 2012.
Kalpa, by Hirokazu Kosaka: This major new site-specific commission by Hirokazu Kosaka will transform the Getty Center’s Arrival Plaza into a sculptural and performative installation. In Sanskrit, kalpa means eon—a long period of time. Once every hundred years, an angel comes down from heaven and swipes the surface of a stone with her silk sleeves until the rock disappears. Kosaka builds a symbolic parallel between kalpa and the inevitable passage of time that slowly transforms our lives, our histories, and our memories.
Following the performance, the Los Angeles Free Music Society (LAFMS) will present the LAFMS Shoe, a series of duets that seamlessly morph from musician to musician exposing a constantly evolving palette of musical voices. The LAFMS Shoe is comprised of many of the core members of LAFMS including Ace Farren Ford, Dennis Duck, Fredrik Nilsen, Joe Potts, Joseph Hammer, Rick Potts, Tom Recchion, and Vetza.
