& Other Sounds from Highland Park
Trying to find herself and having no place to go, an uptown girl from private college lands in the neighborhood of her nightmares, an impoverished Latino barrio in Northeast L.A. Slowly sucked into a foreign world, she crashes into herself, God, and the guttural cry of her soul and then does the unthinkable... she marries one of the "them."
Through an exotic blend of dance, drama, storytelling, and poetry, Lisa Marie Sandoval sweeps you into a story of love, angst, fear, and hope. The Yowling & Other Sounds from Highland Park
will bring you face to face with your own yowling and what it is you really search for.Our 2007 Launch
After a brief weekend at the What's the Story? Solo Performance Festival in Santa Monica, we officially launched The Yowling & Other Sounds from Highland Park in August 2007. Directed by Wendi Berman and produced by Fiona Smyth, the show took its present shape and form with more polished performance and advanced lighting and technical design. See our promo below.
Florentino Sandoval did the simple, yet elegant, set design. It was an exciting, emotional ride and we are looking forward to putting the show up in more theaters for longer runs.
