So, Orville, you think it'll never fly--a nonprofit performance and dance center with a political bent? Then you underestimate Linda Frye Burnham and Tim Miller, the derring-doers who open the Highways performance and dance space in Santa Monica today. Only one other such venue (San Francisco's Life on the Water) has opened in the United States in the last six years. Thirty-year-old performance artist Miller admits that he and Burnham are "two people who should know better."

It sure is a man's world--when it comes to performance art in Los Angeles. Even at Highways, where that venue's first year has been dominated by male performers--until now. "Women's Work," a festival of dance and performance, opens tonight and runs through June 18.

This time The Times has gone too far with its skewed reporting on the L.A. Festival. Shauna Snow's Oct. 26 article was disgraceful. Snow was supposedly reporting on a wrap-up discussion of the festival, an event I attended. This event was nothing short of a testimonial to the beauty and transformative magic of the festival, and Snow chose, as The Times has chosen consistently, to paint a damning picture. Person after person stepped to the mike to praise the festival and talk about how it had changed their lives, yet Snow chose only to note the few remarks that festival director Peter Sellars made about how things could be done better next time.

The launching of the space shuttle Atlantis, the jury's verdict on Oliver North and the inauguration of Highways may not seem to be related beyond sharing Thursday among their realities. But they are--if you listen to Tim Miller and Linda Frye Burnham, co-directors of the brand-new Santa Monica gallery for performance art. For these subculture impresarios see their functionally appointed, high-ceilinged complex as an intersection between art and society, a forum for victims of sociopolitical abuse--we're talking Vietnam War vets, the homeless, California's Japanese-Americans who were imprisoned during World War II, AIDS sufferers without recourse to medical care, Jewish lesbians, battered black wives.

Performance art, once a frontier for the avant-garde, has become institutionalized. But that doesn't mean it isn't still lively. Meet Phillip Torqueflite Greeden, student performance artist. At UC Irvine, back in the early '70s, art students helped pioneer the growth of performance in defiance of their teachers' more traditional, more materialistic art forms. These days, performance is a credit subject at UCI, and Greeden's teachers say he's a star pupil.

Now recovered from injuries sustained in a mugging that occurred in early February, pianist Bryan Pezzone says his hand is now "doing great," and he has begun playing the piano again. Pezzone's left hand suffered a deep cut during the incident, endangering his ring finger. A month later, the pianist underwent hand surgery. "The finger is numb, but feels great," he said last week. How does the rest of Pezzone feel? "Really well. Somehow, this whole experience has become positive.

Sometimes, without the practical, there can be no sublime. Manazar Gamboa, a Los Angeles writer and poet, travels 120 miles a day to teach creative writing to children in juvenile halls across the county. Without a car, he can't get to work to earn the money he needs to pursue his own currently less lucrative Muse. Recently, however, Gamboa's green 1963 Dodge had to be replaced. Only a $2,500 unrestricted fellowship from the Brody Arts Fund, awarded in December, allowed him to do that.

Tim Miller has a habit of being at the forefront in whatever situation he finds himself. Take, for example, his current situation. As co-artistic director (with Linda Frye Burnham) of the multicultural, multimedia performance space called Highways, where his new performance work, "Stretch Marks," plays weekends through August, Miller is leading the charge for, in his words, "a new community."

Now may not be boom time for the alternative arts, but that's not stopping a group of Santa Monica-based artists and arts organizations whose names are synonymous with the cutting edge. In a move that seems to fly in the face of ongoing attacks from the right and a sour economy, the enclave that houses Highways Performance Space and High Performance magazine has just announced a major administrative reconfiguration and facilities expansion, which will open this weekend.

Loudspeakers carry voices in Spanish and English into the streets. Activists brandishing walkie-talkies converse with their unseen comrades. Megaphones and video monitors bring still other voices and faces to a startled crowd. The setting could be the epicenter of a guerrilla combat zone. Or maybe it's just one of those avant-garde art-happenings we haven't seen much of for a decade or two.
