L.A. Dance Project Is Giving Us Three Days of Livestreams This Weekend

We're not sure what we did to deserve the livestream generosity the dance world is giving us these days, but this weekend, it's getting even better.

L.A. Dance Project, Benjamin Milliepied's trendsetting contemporary troupe, has been in residence at The Chinati Foundation for the past few days. This weekend, they're showing us what they've come up with—for three days straight.

The performances will be inspired by the museum's permanent collection, predominantly featuring the work of founder Donald Judd, who designed the costumes and sets for Trisha Brown's 1987 Newark.

LADP is venturing into new territory left and right, so it's no surprise that they're getting in on the site-specific-museum-work trend. (Or the livestream trend, for that matter). They're setting plenty of trends themselves, including creating a series of workout videos and an online dance platform.

Catch them in action on Saturday, Sunday and Monday at 2pm CT/3pm EST. Tune in on Periscope.
