WHAT: GIRLSCHOOL presents IDEALAB.3: JELLY, an interdisciplinary exploration of the strange human experience of embodiment. Idealab is Girlschool’s experimental, performance-led event series. Each Idealab invites a variety of voices to investigate a theme through creative experimentation and collaboration in an intimate environment.
JELLY includes music, movement, critical discourse, performance art, a Rococo Jell-O installation imagined by Jarina de Marco, and the world’s first interactive Jellynthesizer, which explores the tender internal systems of the body through the external avatar of Jell-O.
WHO: Featuring contributions from Jarina De Marco (creative director), Leather Papi(performance artist), Maral (composer), Callie Ryan (sound artist), Jasmine Albuquerque (choreographer), SA Smythe (poet, scholar), Randa Jarrar (author), Kerstin Hovland (visual design), and special guest.
**Since it came to be in 2016, Girlschool has held three annual sold-out women-led three-day music and ideas festivals in Los Angeles, and partners with TOMS to bring an annual capsule festival to SXSW. In addition, Girlschool works with different partners throughout the year to present creative, interdisciplinary women-forward experiences on the forefront of culture through the Idealab series, plus bespoke collaborations.
Founded in 2016 by Anna Bulbrook (the Airborne Toxic Event, band member; Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, Beyoncé, Vampire Weekend, recording violinist) in response to how few women she saw around her in the rock world and on international music festival stages, Girlschool has grown into an empowering and interdisciplinary community of women-identified artists, leaders, and voices who together only shine more brightly. This Mar. 22, 2019, Girlschool is producing its first collaboration with the LA Phil: a tribute to Yoko Ono called BREATHEWATCHLISTENTOUCH at Walt Disney Concert Hall.**
This event was planned in collaboration with Compose LA. Compose LA is a new city-wide new music, new ideas festival planned in conjunction with Department of Cultural Affairs – City of Los Angeles (DCA), American Composers Forum of Los Angeles, University of California Humanities Research Institute, and the Center for Music Innovation – UCLA Herb Alpert School of Music.
