RESUME / CV)
Director: Marissa Chibas
Costume Designer: E.B. Brooks
Marissa Chibas kicks up the dust on Los Angeles history as Clara, a disoriented flapper who awakes after a wild night at the Ambassador Hotel, in 1926, to find she has danced her way into a new century. Performing live and on film, Chibas playfully integrates silent cinema shot by John Hawk with live music inspired by the Roaring 20s composed by Nathan Phelps, as Clara attempts to find her way in the modern city. Wandering to her old haunts—Olvera Street, The Vista Theatre—Clara reveals the rich historic influences to be found in a city often blind to its own past.
"Chibas touches the human need to know who we are and where we come from." —Los Angeles Times
