Gritty Johannesburg, Human/Puppet Theater, and Canine Video Art | Culture Beat Episode 6

From a South African gallery to the art of dog grooming, check out this episode of Culture Beat.

We visit LA-based canine groomer Jess Rona, who's turned her work into a social media video art sensation. Then, we see how theater group Phantom Limb combines human and puppet actors to surreal effect for their newest play, Memory Rings, addressing the human relationship to nature. We head to Johannesburg, South Africa to visit Kalashnikovv Gallery, a subversive art/project space challenging the academic mainstream by showcasing gritty, experimental, yet accessible work from independent artists.


Note: Phantom Limb Company is a participant in Lower Manhattan Cultural Council's Process Space program. Falling Out is being developed as part of Lower Manhattan Cultural Council's Process Space program. Supported by the Japan Foundation through the Performing Arts JAPAN program.
