InSomewhere In Between: Los Angeles artist Bia Gayotto investigates what it feels like to navigate and inhabit two or more places and cultures. Through an open call, residents will be invited to participate in an interview and video shoot that relates to seventeen neighborhoods along Route 66 from Pasadena to Santa Monica. The two-screen installation will juxtapose cityscapes, architecture, and domestic settings with portraits of the participants performing simple, everyday actions. The soundtrack will consist of music, ambient sound and voiceover, revealing a state of mind typical of those who live in an intercultural space. The result is intended to be a multilayered portrait of the greater Los Angeles area, mixing images of the city and its people with stories that reveal their sense of self and place in the world.

I live for adventure! I've been in rock bands, movies, plays and on TV. I adore animals, motorcycles get my heart racing and I also have a passion for sushi and ice cream (not at the same time). I was the Queen of the 31st Occasional Pasadena Doo Dah Parade. I am also a professional belly dancer (swords are my speciality), a Polynesian/Tahitian dance student and a full-time journalist. Here, I'll share some of my life- who I meet and where I go in the music scene, as well as music news, and any other intriguing people, places and things I come across. **PLEASE NOTE: Here I will also post excerpts from press releases I receive with information on upcoming entertainment events and news.** Welcome and keep on rockin'!
