LOS ANGELES -- The cultural center Highways recently celebrated its 18th birthday with works by the Hysterica Dance Company and Victoria Marks. This fall will see additional dance troupes making brief but important appearances at the Center.

On Sept. 21-22, for example, Intention Dance Theatre will present SOMA FEST--CONSCIOUS EMBODIMENT IN PERFORMANCE, curated by Teri Carter. Fourteen artists from around he USA will offer performances, workshops and jams that are inspired by the theories of Continuum, Body-Mind Centering, Feldenkrais and Tai Chi Chuan, among others.

Other dance dates include THE FINGERED SEVEN, EZTV & College Ensembles with Donna Sternberg & Dancers (Sept. 28 & 29); POP TARTS--THE FIRST ANNUAL UNITARD POP OFF, programmed by Meg Wolfe, Marcus Keiland-Mazario and Sara Wolf. "See your favorite in/famous dance and movement artists endure challenges in this fierce competition to win The Golden Unitard. Think Survivor meets Dance Fever."

On Oct. 19 & 20, Keith Antar Mason will debut his new work, MAN IN THE BELLY OF A SLAVESHIP (FROM ANGOLA TO ANGOLA), aided by The Hittite Empire. "An African American elected president survives a civil war and is sold into a prison labor camp. Islamic jihadists prevent the spread of Eazy-E-Aids and Hip-Hop. Nappy-headed sharp tongues and thinkers do the wild thing to travel from the past into this American future during a slave rebellion on a sinking ship. Come to the U.S. premiere before it all happens."
