Satsang Lounge is landing at Theatre Theater in Los Angeles September 23, October 21, November (tba) & December 16, 2008.
Friends and marvelous artists- Join me!
*Satsang Lounge is an on-going new works performance series where a diverse group of talented Los Angeles based artists are invited to exhibit, explore and workshop new works in the company of other artists in a cabaret style performance setting.
The inspiration for Satsang Lounge came when I was looking for an “open door artist collective” where I could workshop the new material I was developing for my solo show. So I looked for an empty theater and invited other writers, artists, actors, musicians, dancers, poets, painters, filmmakers, magicians, storytellers, DJ'S and whomever else could fit their work in the venue, to play, present, and explore their newest works in front one another and an audience. From 1998-2003 I produced and hosted many successful *Satsang Lounge performance series in New York City at the historic West Beth Theater. Now I am in Los Angeles and I am putting the word OUT.
ATTENTION: actors, performers, musicians, film makers, dancers, writers (fiction, non fiction, poets, etc.) storytellers of all kinds- YOU - who’ve been developing new material and feel NOW is the time to try it out.
Here’s your opportunity! No age limit! Let’s go!
WHERE: Theatre Theater (5401 Pico off La Brea) will host our SATSANG evenings- it’s a fantastic theater venue that friends Jeff Murray & Nicolette Chaffrey own and have recently renovated with new sound and lighting! www.theatretheater.net
Performance: There will be 7 to 8 ‘acts’ per Lounge evening. Each act will have 12 - 25 minutes- depending on the genre. There will be one intermission. *Libations and snacks will be available for purchase before, during and after the show.
Promotions: I will list the *Satsang Lounge in local publications, there will also be a press release emailed three weeks in advance, and you will receive postcard invites to hand out- with your names listed on them, and by all means you can list us in your websites, blogs, etc.

Please pass this fantastic performance opportunity on to your friends!
*Satsang (Sanskrit sat = true, sanga = company): describes in Indian philosophy (1) the company of the "highest truth," and (2) company of persons who listen to, talk about, and assimilate the truth. This typically involves listening to or reading scriptures, reflecting on, discussing and assimilating their meaning, meditating on the source of these words, and bringing their meaning into one’s daily life.
~I have taken this term and extended it to a company of artists- where discussing, sharing, witnessing, creating, and being in the company of other artists will inspire more creativity, feed our artistic spirits, and contribute to the realization of our life’s work.
With love. Misi Lopez Lecube
