FRI OCT 2 - SUN OCT 4: PERFORMANCE: Karen Anzoategui's Catholic School Daze $15 general / $12 students / $10 groups of 10 or more

Catholic School Daze is an autobiographical solo performance that tells the story of ‘Karen’ who finds humor and pain while surviving the challenges of gender norms, sexuality, and faith. Karen is forced to take the blame for an act of "lesbianism" in front of the whole school. Bullied by administrators and schoolmates alike, Karen is forced to make difficult decisions as they survive Catholic High School and the intersection between queerness, faith, and self-infiction.

Anzoategui is currently working on a documentary based on this work; developed  through workshops with their audience members at the UCLA Chicano Research Library, Cal State Northridge and the Cal State Fullerton Queer People of Color Conference.

He loves me. He loves me not. He's from the wrong side of town. Parents don't understand. Boys are good. Boys are bad.

On Sept 17th at Human Resources, some of our favorite local bands will perform their favorite tunes from the early days of rock, pop, and rebels on motorcycles!

THURS SEP 10 - SUN SEP 13: EXHIBITION: Let It Yellow / Keith Rocka Knittel

The work in L​et it Yellow is process driven - performances build objects creating a syntax as gestures break down their materiality, starting the process over again. Art objects exist equally as both a means of representing the present and a remnant of the past, both combined to reflect upon the future.

OPENING RECEPTION: Thursday, September 10, 7-10PM

FRI SEP 11: MUSIC: Gautam Tejas Ganeshan 7-10PM / $10 donation but no one turned away for lack of funds

His concerts reflect a traditional aesthetic, embracing a classical style instantly recognizable to aficionados worldwide, and transforming it through the creation of an ongoing body of original works based in love and understanding of Carnatic music - its elaborate structures, extensive improvisations, and the utmost sincerity that distinguishes its greatest practitioners.

With musical accompaniment by Karthik Vasan (mridangam), Pallavi Mynampati (bamboo flute), and Jaeger Smith (tambura).

FRI SEP 4 - SUN SEP 6: EXHIBITION + PERFORMANCE: What It Means to Learn / Johanna Jackson & Dana Dart McLean

In addition to their individual work, Johanna Jackson and Dana Dart-McLean have used this opportunity to create collaborative paintings, sculpture, and installation. Each of the works on view engages a similar humor about blurring between representational and functional objects: a sculpture that is a mirror, a painting that is a hat.

At the opening, Peter Hernandez, Busy Gangnes, and Nickels Sunshine will dance in a collaboratively choreographed piece, using sculpture by Dana and Johanna.

OPENING RECEPTION: Friday, September 4, 7-9PM
