A trans-national, contemporary art event (San Diego CA/ Tijuana MX) supporting emerging and established artists in both regions.
Our mission is to strengthen and encourage trans-border visibility and collaboration amongst performing artists, queer artists, musicians, actors and dancers.
Each season of LA RARA NOCHE welcomes artists to participate in any of each of the three shows at least once. Functioning similar to an open mic night, artists can present their ideas informally as we encourage experimentations to take place freely.
Our vision is to support and help artists advance their work by providing participating artists with some funds, access to space (rehearsal), a venue for presenting, a secured audience, technical assistance and some equipment.
LA RARA NOCHE strives to introduce audiences with a wide and colorful spectrum of contemporary performance by bringing together regional talent and present their work outside of institutionalized venues.
SEASON 2 PRESENTED MORE THAN 27 ARTISTS WORKS.
LA RARA NOCHE was directly inspired by The Weird Night- a variety show event hosted by Dynasty Handbag in Los Angeles CA.
Each Season, RARA finds a different home in San Diego or Tijuana in spaces dedicated to the arts and performance.
