With low-tech, do-it-yourself spirit in an easygoing setting, Anatomy Riot is an ongoing (almost) monthly dance/performance series, curated by choreographer Meg Wolfe & guest curators. AR started in October 2005; since that time, 250 artists and counting have performed at Anatomy Riot. AR encourages creative exploration and provides a platform for local artists to share what's new and what's in the works; you, dear audience, are spared from the high ticket prices and seat-squirming formality of a more
traditional theater setting, while seeing a diversity of works by up-and-coming & seasoned artists.
new dances (and other things), right before your very eyes.

AR #33 (9/14/09)
“Scores for a Recession,” an evening of works by ten L.A. choreographer/dancers, takes on the subject of a dance score: the set of agreements, conditions and plans that create a framework for a dance. While some dance scores are open maps that leave considerable room for in-the- moment choices, other scores are more prescriptive. Each of these dances, by virtue of their efficiency, impermanence and disposability, are implicated by the current state of the economy. Artists Rae Shao-Lan Blum, Doran George, Mira Kingsley, Arianne Hoffmann, Carol McDowell, Victoria Marks, Stephanie Nugent, Taisha Paggett, Lionel Popkin and Christine Suarez will tangle with the notion of a dance score as they tacitly (or explicitly) engage the current state of dance-making economics.

"Anatomy Riot's "grab a drink and sit a spell" philosophy is just the sort of shot in the arm that the Los Angeles dance scene needs. Curator Meg Wolfe's choice of bar-type environments acts as the impetus for creative experimentation and lively discussion. Anatomy Riot can seem a down-and-dirty approach to dance presentation, but who better to get down and dirty than a bunch of dancers?" (flavorpill l.a., 2006)
"The delicate efforts of trained dancers are often cast to the sleepy stages of upper-crust universities or, worse, squandered in cheesy adaptations of Disney films. But dancer/choreographer Meg Wolfe, a former New York powerhouse who recently moved to LA, gives modern dance a much-needed jumpstart, curating Anatomy Riot " (flavorpill l.a., 2005)

hi past & future anatomy riotists,
As you may know, we've had performers visiting from San Diego for a couple of shows, as an exchange with the 4x4 series there. 4x4 was inspired by Anatomy Riot, and is directed by Liam Clancy and administered by Sushi Art and Performance.
4x4 happens the second TUESDAY each month.
The stage is VERY small, only 4 feet x4 feet, it is in the center of the room, so the audience is on all sides.
If this particular scenario interests you, and you want to perform in San Diego at this event, let me know. 4x4 will pay a small fee towards transportation.
Who I'd like to meet:
- Status: Swinger
- Here for: Networking, Friends
- Hometown: Los Angeles, CA
- Orientation: Not Sure
- Body type: Some extra baggage
- Ethnicity: Other
- Zodiac Sign: Libra
- Occupation: dance purveyor
