SZLA – Immersive, Interactive, and Coming Soon

Over a year’s work. From a team of over a hundred artists and community members. Sacrifice Zone: Los Angeles (SZLA) is coming soon! SZLA is an immersive environmental justice experience that merges an art installation with live performance.  Utilizing multimedia enriched, documentary theatre and film storytelling tools and techniques, SZLA highlights the damaging effects of decades of industrial pollution on South Los Angeles communities. 

Sacrifice Zone: Los Angeles will transform the Otis Booth Pavilion at the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County into a typical home along the I-710 Corridor in South L.A.  During the live performances, audiences will interact with a family preparing for an important milestone event, explore the household in the order of their choosing, and go at their own pace while learning about the issues faced by those who live in sacrifice zones, and what can be done about it.  Attendees should plan to spend at least 45 minutes to experience Sacrifice Zone: Los Angeles.

The exhibit runs January 13 – 28, 2024 during regular museum hours. The performances are: January 13, 14; 19, 20, 21; 26, 28 from 6:30 – 9 pm. (No performance January 27.) More info to come.
