La Loma would like to recommend, Touch the Water: A River Play, from May 28-June 21, 2009, Wednesdays-Sundays at 8pm. Performed along the bank of the Los Angeles River at the Rio de Los Angeles State Park - Bowtie Parcel entrance adjacent to 2800 Casitas Ave, LA 90039.
"Under the City of Angels runs a fierce river flowing from the mountains to the ocean. But do you know it’s there? Once an unpredictable and mighty stream, a bountiful life source subject to raging floods, the Los Angeles River has lived under a shroud of concrete for the past fifty years. Today, having been tamed and transformed into an industrial flood channel, the river is at the center of much debate. What happens when we change Nature? Should we free the river from her concrete corset and let Angelenos finally touch the water?"
