Base Residency Open House with Annabel Turrado


Annabel Turrado (she, her, ella) is a Los Angeles based performance installation artist. The focus of her Base Residency is on the Mexican Danza de los Viejitos, or the Dance of the Old Wo/Men. La Danza de los Viejitos is said to have originated in the Mexican state of Michoacan in the Purépecha Region, and was a pre-hispanic ritual to honor the old god for good harvest and communication with spirits. She will be adapting this traditional dance and conceptualizing a contemporary version using this as the foundation. Through dance and bodily movement, she will honor our Elders; those who no longer have the youth to move their bodies freely and comfortably, those who have used their bodies to support our futures, and those that no longer inhabit bodies in this realm. 

Please join us at Base on Saturday, July 22 between 12 - 6 PM for Annabel Turrado's durational performance. Audience is welcome to enter and exit Base anytime during this six hour performance. 


Space is limited – please reserve a free ticket in advance.

Masks are required for Base events.

Please note that Base is not air conditioned.

Accessibility at Base:

The Factory has a ramped entrance located at the north end of the building (through the orange door); the southern entrance of the building is only accessible by stairs. The building has limited outside lighting and can be difficult to navigate and locate when its dark out.

Once inside, Base is accessible by ramp through our front doors. Please note that Base is not a scent-free space. The Factory has two gender neutral multi-stall restrooms and two single stall restrooms that are wheelchair accessible.

Because we share a building with other studios, there are often industrial noises throughout the building and heavy machinery operated such as forklifts.

Any additional accessibility needs/requests for the show? Reach out to
