A Selective Guide to the Arts in Los Angeles

Highways Performance Space Artistic Director Leo Garcia presents the cathartic multimedia one-man show, “Apocalyptic Exodus Scenarios,” written and performed by Joey Halter for two nights only on Friday, July 31, and Saturday, Aug. 1. Blending philosophy with absurdist comedy, psychedelic lighting, video projections, and rock and roll, Halter’s “Apocalyptic Exodus Scenario” is a humorous existential exploration of life’s enigmas. The 90-minute event starts at 8:30 p.m. at Highways Performance Space in Santa Monica.

“Apocalyptic Exodus Scenarios” is a humorous multimedia one-man show that explores creative evolution and the personal apocalypse that we all must endure. Through raw, stream of consciousness rantings that involve masturbation, aliens and mindless jobs, colorful characters Charlie, Dave, Gary, Jim, Randy and William collectively take an existential quest, through darkness and light, in search of meaning. The work, a collection of related monologues, tells the story of one man as many men — a reflection on the myriad lives that we all inhabit within a single lifetime, much like nested Russian dolls.
