Performing amidst a forest of microphones, sound effects, props and musical instruments, award-winning performance artist Dan Froot and Company presents PANG!, a triptych of live radio plays based on the oral histories of three families hungering for change in Miami, Cedar Rapids and South Central Los Angeles.
“Is this entertainment? The best kind, the kind that makes you think and feel and maybe even change things.”
Dan Froot is a producer, composer, choreographer, writer, saxophonist, dancer, actor and director. He has performed his dance, music and theater work throughout the U.S. and overseas since 1983, and has worked with artists as diverse as Yoshiko Chuma, Ping Chong, Mabou Mines, Dan Hurlin, Ralph Lemon, Guy Klucevsek and Victoria Marks. Dan and long-time collaborator David Dorfman have co-created a popular and ongoing series of interdisciplinary duets collectively entitled “Live Sax Acts.” He received a Bessie (New York Dance & Performance Award) for his music/theater piece, “Seventeen Kilos of Garlic,” and a City of Los Angeles Artist Fellowship and a playwriting commission from the National Foundation for Jewish Culture for his gangster-vaudeville, “Shlammer.” He recently completed a national tour of “Who’s Hungry,” a collaboration with celebrated New York puppet artist Dan Hurlin and Seattle-based composer Amy Denio. “Who’s Hungry” tells life-stories of individuals living with hunger and/or homelessness in Los Angeles. Dan’s current project, “Pang!”, is a triptych of live radio plays based on the life stories of three families living with hunger in Miami, Cedar Rapids, and South Central Los Angeles. It will premiere in all three cities in 2017-2018.
