About Chavez Ravine
Powerhouse L.A.-based Latino/Chicano performance trio, Culture Clash returns to Center Theatre Group with a reexamination of Los Angeles’ heritage and history in this newly curated and serialized retelling of Chavez Ravine. Originally commissioned by Center Theatre Group and premiered at the Mark Taper Forum in 2003, Chavez Ravine delves into the transformation of a growing city and a small, tightly knit neighborhood, cherished barrio initially slated to be an affordable housing project; however, after years of city wide scandals the land lay dormant and eventually became the site of Dodger Stadium. Selected scenes & allegories curated into 9 Innings or episodes, will be filmed on location around Los Angeles incorporating music, archival films, period photos, interviews and new performances by Richard Montoya, Ric Salinas and Herbert Siguenza. This digital and cinematic revival of Chavez Ravine is co-curated by Culture Clash and longtime creative comrade Lisa Peterson, who directed the premiere and subsequent revival at the Kirk Douglas Theatre in 2015. The first in the series will be released in early 2021.
Culture Clash (Richard Montoya, Ric Salinas and Herbert Siguenza) are members of the newly formed CTG Creative Collective, a dozen inspiring, innovative and highly collaborative artists shaping the contours of the theatrical landscape of the future.
