Meet Me @Metro: Uncovering Los Angeles’ Hidden Treasures (M3-III) is Watts Village Theater Company's (WVTC's) third annual celebration of transit and performing arts. This hands-on artistic expedition will search out culturally significant sites around the Metro rail system and create “artistic excavations” that will allow audience members to discover and learn about Los Angeles’ rich and diverse artistic history in an active and participatory manner.

The audience members will be led by a “Musical Archaeologist” who will guide the audience to the discovery of different performing treasures. All the performing solo artists and companies along the route will play the role of “Site Stewards” by safeguarding the truth of each site's history. The overall concept is to create a site-specific artistic extravaganza that highlights Los Angeles’ rich cultural and artistic wealth. Performances will take place on and around the Metro Gold Rail Line. This project’s route was selected specifically because it will make it possible to highlight the many artistic contributions made to Los Angeles’ cultural identity by Native American, Asian American and Latino/Hispanic/Chicana/o communities. 

 

M3-III continues WVTC's amazing tradition of providing original professional theatrical performances for people who would not otherwise be able to experience them. It also facilitates the theater experience for people in new, surprising and unexpected ways. This project speaks to the new and creative way in which Los Angeles theater companies are reaching out to new audience members and communities!

 

WVTC is a multicultural urban company that seeks to inspire its community with an appreciation of all cultures through new works about contemporary social issues. Commissioned theater companies will produce a 5 - 10 minute play for the event. Each performance will be staged at Metro stations on the Gold Line going towards East Los Angeles. In addition, musicians and solo performers will move audiences from one place to another in between performances and as they travel the Metro stations towards their next performance.
