A FARM FOR MEME, a virtual performance

August 1 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

A butterfly sits in a walnut tree on a 14-acre farm in the middle of South Central Los Angeles; a mother and her three boys live in a tent in an encampment trying to save the farm from police and bulldozers; an artist norteada plants tomato plants in potholes hoping they will break open the concrete. A FARM FOR MEME is a story about semilleros and the South Central Farm, built in a vacant lot after the 1992 LA rebellion—written by Virginia Grise in the middle of today’s rebellion, directed virtually by Elena Araoz during a global pandemic.
Una mariposa se sienta en un nogal en una granja de 14 acres en el centro sur de Los Ángeles; una madre y sus tres hijos viven en un campamento tratando de salvar la granja de la policía y las excavadoras; un artista norteada planta plantas de tomate en los baches de la calle con la esperanza de que rompan el concreto. A FARM FOR MEME es una historia sobre semilleros and the South Central Farm, construida en un terreno baldío después de la rebelión de Los Ángeles en 1992, escrita por Virginia Grise en medio de la rebelión de hoy, dirigida virtualmente por Elena Araoz durante una pandemia global.
