This past Wednesday I attended one of my favorite events of the business year—the presentation of the Otis Report on the Creative Economy of the Los Angeles Region. For those of you not familiar with this annual event, Otis partners with the LA Economic Development Corporation to assess the size, breadth, and impact of the creative industries locally. This year it was held in the theater at the Colburn School downtown. It is always at the crack of dawn and preceded by coffee and pastries, a chance for me to catch up with artistic friends that I don’t happen across the rest of the year. Otis President Sammy Hoi is truly one of LA’s treasures.

Would you consider doing more set design in the future?
When Santiago Calatrava was invited to collaborate with the New York City Ballet, he
was honored and inspired to further explore his study of movement and the human
body. The resulting stage designs debuted during this summer’s ballet season, aptly
titled: The Architecture of Dance – New Choreography and Music Festival. Publisher
Ann Gray spoke with Mr. Calatrava on collaborating with artists, the expression of
movement, and the ephemeral nature of set design.
This is eighth in a series of 8 audio clips taken from the interview.
