LA Weekly's Description
This Chinatown experimental puppet theater is the only of its kind in Los Angeles, and that fact alone makes the nonprofit organization's shows worth a visit. Founded in 2004, it brings together the artistic visions of performance artists Janie Geiser and Susan Simpson, who have put on shows ranging from holiday spectaculars to cabaret festivals. Membership is available, or grab tickets on a show by show basis.
Automata is a non-profit organization located at 504 Chung King Court in the Chinatown District of Los Angeles. We are dedicated to the creation, incubation, and presentation of experimental puppet theater, experimental film, and other contemporary art practices centered on ideas of artifice and performing objects. Automata stands at the fulcrum points between objects and performance, artifacts and ephemera, magic and mechanics, artifice and interface.
