Metro Art Presents will commemorate 10 years of arts and cultural programming inspired by the
greater Los Angeles area and the people it serves each day. Hosted at Los Angeles Union Station, MAPPING Performance: 10 Years of Metro Art Presents will celebrate with percussion-driven music and dance drawing from Southeast Asian and Afro-Brazilian traditions, bringing the community together in the heart of Los Angeles at the heart of the LA Metro transit system.
Saturday, June 24 will feature Southeast Asian traditions and diasporic artists who bring their cultural backgrounds into contemporary practices, while Sunday, June 25 – which will be highly participatory – will highlight Afro-Brazilian traditions, such as capoeira, which blends music, dance, and acrobatics, as well as samba-reggae.
From dancers to DJs to rock bands, Metro Art Presents invites the community to witness how Angelenos draw from their varied cultural backgrounds and traditions to create contemporary performing arts.
