Art At The Rendon presents STORIES, an immersive, operatic work that will transform The Rendon Hotel through a layering of film projection and live performances. Following the successful inaugural event HIDDEN ROOMS presented earlier this summer, Ralph Ziman, an artist, filmmaker, and the hotel’s owner is facilitating Art At The Rendon’s latest production, which will continue the creative narrative with the building and its colorful history as inspiration.
STORIES will combine film projections and live performances to activate both the exterior and interior of the vacant hotel. The original corner dive bar, Licha’s Bar and Grill, will be reimagined as a 1920’s speakeasy with libations by local distilleries and breweries to match and music by local Gypsy Jazz musicians The Vignes Rooftop Revival.
Attendees will be invited to move freely through two floors of the hotel, entering individual rooms where actors will present different slices of life. Opera singer Rachel Staples Guettler will perform live at the event. Downstairs, the hotel’s corner dive bar, Licha’s Bar and Grill, will be reimagined as a 1920s speakeasy with libations by Angel City Brewery, Infuse Spirits and Pali Wine as well as live music by The Vignes Rooftop Revival. All are based in the Arts District.
STORIES continues Art at The Rendon’s commitment to the local arts community. 100% of proceeds benefit local arts organizations Inner City Arts and Cornerstone Theater Company.
