Free dance performance at LAX Flyaway bus terminal

This sounds like fun:

On Saturday, July 2, 2011, the Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA) will be hosting a free,
site-specific dance titled Flyway Home at the LAX FlyAway bus terminal, 7610 Woodley Avenue in Van Nuys.

The dance is directed and choreographed by Sarah Elgart and will be performed at 8:15 pm and 9:45 pm.

“Dancers will engage in an interactive production incorporating the outdoor space and architecture of the bus terminal, as well as original music by Feltlike and large-scale projections by artist Stephen Glassman. Dancers will move through the bus terminal facilities and open-air areas, while travelers make their way to their destinations over July 4th weekend. A display of light patterns and images projected onto the exterior of the bus terminal’s multi-level parking structure will transform the structure into a large-scale projection screen.”

If you happen to be traveling to or through San Diego International Airport on Tuesday morning (September 14, 2010) between 10:30 am and 12:30 pm, make your way to the Terminal 2 West baggage claim area.

There, against the backdrop of travelers going about the business of grabbing their bags and greeting their loved ones, you’ll get to see the Malashock Dance Company perform a travel-themed modern dance.

And, if you’re checking into a hotel this week, keep in mind that it’s International Housekeepers Week.  This ‘holiday’ is celebrated each year in the second full week of September and in many cities the week is marked with Housekeeping Olympics competitions that include laundry folding, bed making, toilet bowl bowling, vacuum cleaner racing and other events.

The folks at the Four Season Austin were kind enough to share this photo of their general manager (the guy with the boxing gloves) fighting to keep the Housekeeping Champ title.
