On the Radar
September 29, 2013

Grand Central Market has been turned into an avant garde performance hall as part of Radar L.A., an international festival of contemporary theater organized by REDCAT, the Roy and Edna Disney Cal Arts Theater at Disney Hall.

From today through this Sunday, September 29, writers are stationed throughout the Market, where they are writing real-time fictional stories inspired by the real-life activities around them. The writer sits at an unobtrusive spot, but his story is projected on the wall for everyone to read.

One writer stationed near the Information Desk started to freestyle about a man who sat down at a table and opened up his lunch. As the man assembled his tacos, he handled a roasted jalapeño.

The writer continued the story:

"He will forget he did that, and later will touch his eyes and cry.

A good cry, though. Not a bad one."

The man had his back to the wall, so he didn't notice as the narrrative scrolled behind him. A dozen or so people in the Market though, watched the whole thing go down—the theater of real life against the backdrop of art.

The performance piece is called Sometimes I think, I Can See You, and it comes to L.A. from Argentina. The director is Mariano Pensotti.
