A project emerges…

Rebeca Hernandez has organized a dance and music project, designed for the Mariachi Plaza location in Los Angeles.

A collaborative project emerging from Octavio’s workshop, Rebeca is the organizer and choreographer, and improvisational music is by Comfort Zone, the duo consisting of myself (Oz) on Chapman stick, and Breeze Smith on drums and percussion.

Here is a short video of an on-site rehearsal from last night. Enjoy!
