Excavating Venice of America

Off Sale

Join award-winning Los Angeles writer-performers Richard Montoya (Culture Clash's Chavez Ravine, Water & Power) and Roger Guenveur Smith (Rodney King, The Watts Towers Project) as they mine the beginnings of an iconic Southern California community for their new work-in-progress, tentatively titled American Venice. Alongside guest speakers who know Venice Beach intimately, Montoya and Smith will uncover surprising, epic—and true—stories of our city's shared, and often contested, history. We’ll discuss Jim Crow laws, California dreaming, contemporary art, leisure and amusement, rock 'n' roll, gangland warfare, wildcat oil greed, urban decay, and religion as we get a glimpse into the creative process of two great theatre artists/anthropologists.
