Where in the world has Dudley Saunders been?! Find out this Friday in Venice, CA....
Here is a statement form the artist:
If you wonder why it's been so long between albums ... the answer is from the other side of my creative life. Let me come out of the closet about it:
This Friday, February 12, 2pm at Beyond Baroque (Venice, CA), I'll be shooting the pilot for TELLING LA, a new public TV series that brings the live storytelling community of Los Angeles to broadcast.
A cross between THIS AMERICAN LIFE and THE MOTH, each episode of TELLING LA explores one theme through the stories of four diverse Angelenos. As the stories unfold before the live audience, what emerges is a human portrait of a mythic American city.
The pilot episode is HOW I ENDED UP IN L.A., stories of the search for home, and the moment that made these four storytellers realize that LA was where they belonged.
The (remarkable) storytellers are: Antonio Sacre, Maire Clerkin, Trini Rodriguez and Barbara Clark.
Right now, there are only ten seats still left. If you would like to be in the audience for the taping - and can stay for all four stories - just RSVP at the link below.
