LOS ANGELES COUNTY MUSEUM OF ART - THE LEAST IMPORTANT THINGS by EMILY MAST
Nicole performed in The Least Important Things at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) in an original piece by artist Emily Mast.
For The Least Important Things, Mast selected a diverse range of works by Joan Brossa (1919–1998) that were written with the intention of being staged. Brossa was a Catalan poet, playwright, graphic designer, and visual artist who made work about the limitations of language and its material nature. His “stage poetry” embraced incoherence, the everyday, and popular forms of entertainment such as magic, cabaret, and comedy routines.
The performance assumed the form of a procession of free-standing theatrical vignettes unfolding in different venues throughout LACMA's campus and were staged in intermediate spaces that reflect Brossa and Mast’s interest in the undefined. Los Angeles–based artist Emily Mast often works in projects that celebrate intersections between art, dance, and theater.
