Electro-circus troupe Lucent Dossier Experience announces a dramatic new show, Unleash Your Legend, which opens at Club Nokia. Lucent Dossier will be supported by bass-heavy DJs MartyParty, Dirtwire, and Nico Luminous on the main stage. Mikey Lion, Marbs, and Deep Jesus of Desert Hearts will take over the upstairs stage with their deep house.

Lucent Dossier heads in a powerful new direction with Unleash Your Legend. This new show is inspired by the troupe’s recent Cotton Club-style production for The Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas, which exhibited a strong urban and street feel. With the addition of new members, Lucent Dossier’s troupe configuration now features incredible Los Angeles battle dancers that incorporate a multitude of dance styles: crunking, breaking, voguing, bone-breaking, hip-hop, and parkour.

Screen Shot 2015-02-08 at 7.06.29 PM

In total, the 70-minute spectacle showcases 16 performers, plus Lucent Dossier’s trademark innovative choreography, fire, aerials, acrobatics, and contortion. Unleash Your Legend delivers all the madness and beauty of Lucent Dossier in one truly unique and amazing new performance.

Screen Shot 2015-02-08 at 7.07.13 PM

Music also takes a new turn in Unleash Your Legend, merging the deep bass that Lucent Dossier is known for with new influences pulling from deep house, hip-hop, jungle, techno and melodies inspired by world music.

Diavolo: Architecture in Motion is an internationally renowned performance company that reinvents dance, reimagines theater, and redefines thrills through a fusion of acrobatics, martial arts, ballet, contemporary, hip-hop, and other dance programs. Diavolo’s esteemed artistic director Jacques Heim returns to Los Angeles with his extraordinary dance production of Transit Space and Trajectoire.

diavolo-logo-600x600

The hour-long, jam-packed performance at the Greek will feature performances of Transit Space and its signature piece – Trajectoire. There will be special guest appearances by spoken word artist, and Transit Space narrator Steve Connell and by renowned film composer, Nathan Wang who composes Trajectoire.

Transit Space explores themes of feeling lost, finding a sense of purpose and coming together. Influenced by the documentary Dogtown and Z-Boys, Transit Space uses skateboard ramps as set pieces to represent an urban environment with ever-shifting physical and emotional spaces.

Trajectoire is a visceral and emotional journey through the ebb and flow of the human experience. As the performers struggle to find their balance on a voyage of destiny and destination, Trajectoire illustrates the transcendence of the human soul against all odds.

Diavolo explores the relationship between the danger of our environment and the fragility of the human body. The performances illuminate dance through a dynamic and powerful repertoire utilizing unique architectural creations as the focal point for dancers to confront, challenge and manipulate. Diavolo is like a live abstract painting. There is no narrative but rather strong themes that pervade the work-themes such as human struggle, fear, danger, survival, chaos, order, deconstruction, reconstruction, destiny, destination, faith and love.

Owned by the City of Los Angeles since January, 1996, today’s Warner Grand Theater is the last remaining functioning ‘nabe’ south of downtown L.A. and north of San Diego County. It still screens the classics on its 50 ft. screen and hosts concerts on its vaudeville size stage. Since the city’s acquisition, the theatre has undergone a slow upgrading, including the installation of new dressing rooms, new concession stands, a box office area, redone projection and an upgraded stage system.
