A consortium of creatives working in the fields of writing, performing, design and storytelling convene to present CONTACT — a spectacle of rich visuals, organic movement, dance, and live audio/visual mixing unfolding on the Highways stage this weekend. Evocative and provocative, spiritualized and sensual, the piece is the collaboration of SOMA 2020 (Magdalena Edwards and Sohani Holland) with guests Peter Johnson, Amy Zimmitti and Amanda Maciel Antunes. Its vibrant aesthetic and interdisciplinary spirit speak directly to the enlightened intersectional world the artists seek to create.
Highways, 18th Street Arts Center, 1651 18th St., Santa Monica; Fri.-Sat., Feb. 28-29, 8:30 p.m.; $25. highwaysperformance.org.
