SAN PEDRO FESTIVAL OF THE ARTS (previously the TriArt ? Festival) announces Year 14

The SAN PEDRO FESTIVAL OF THE ARTS (formerly the SP TriArt Festival) is a free family event this year virtual and featuring dance exclusively. This year the link opens on Saturday and Sunday, Sept 19 and 20, 2020- open for two weeks through Oct 4. This will be its 14th year. Eight years ago, the TriArt Festival moved to Ports O' Call Village helping to draw in thousands of new spectators, performers, and vendors to showcase San Pedro as a center for art. Because of construction on the site the festival then moved to Crafted at the Port of Los Angeles, and then to a location across from the USS Iowa, Port of Los Angeles, and last year we had a new home at Anderson Memorial Center. In conjunction with this, a Health/Wellness and a Visual Art/Community Event produced by the Los Angeles City Recreation and Parks also took place both days. With the current pandemic, we were unable to return to Anderson with all group events an uncertainty, and our primary funder for this recurring outside festival, the Department of Cultural Affairs, City of Los Angeles graciously suggested we could move to a digital platform honoring CD 15. Janice Hahn, Los Angeles County Supervisor of Supervisial District 4, has also pledged a grant supporting this.

Original founder, Joe Caccavalla, envisioned the dance, music, and visual arts/ crafts as the heart of the festival to foster art appreciation. After his death in 2012, the producers reformed as SAN PEDRO ? TRI ART Festival and since then our audience attendance has multiplied by the thousands along with increased recognition. It has become best known for its dance performances, also gaining increased recognition each year for its music. Our company, Los Angeles Choreographers & Dancers (LA C&D), had previously been the non-profit fiscal receiver for the festival, and we applied for and received a festival grant from the Department of Cultural Affairs, City of LA, which is still one of our major funders. Louise Reichlin is Executive Producer and Dance Director, and curates a diverse range of companies from a large competitive group of applications, this year including ballet, modern, jazz, contemporary, and specific and fusion ethnic groups. The choreographers are all professional ranging in age this year to 79, but included are both professional dance companies and four exemplary studios or schools including a few performers under 10, so they can share their work with each other and the community. A special feature is that besides just the videos, each piece will have a short introduction by the Artist, or an interview with Reichlin, or a short verbal introduction. Editor for the online Festival is Andrew Zutta.

LA C&D is supported, in part, by the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors through the Los Angeles County Department of Arts and Culture. and the festival is supported in part by a grant from the Department of Cultural Affairs, City of Los Angeles. Funds also come from Los Angeles County Supervisor Janice Hahn, but many of our usual contributors for In-Kind necessities such as a stage, dance flooring, venues for previews, and music set up are unable to be accepted this year. They are all still listed on the web pages designed by Aliza Lesser, as we hope to have our outside event next year again. So thanks to our past and present funders and donors, the SAN PEDRO ? FESTIVAL OF THE ARTS is able to thrive another year and bring the vibrant San Pedro community and beyond quality dance performances and unforgettable photos of the area.

This listing is alphabetical, and the exact times (or in this case timecodes) of each companies' interview and performance will be on the website closer to the opening. Bios and photos are currently all featured there.
