Dancers Sarah Baumert, Suzette Gilreath, Erika Hansen, Megan Mayer and Leslie O’Neill perform in a new, site-specific Sound Garden installation at Riverside Park. This premier performance directed by composer JG Everest will also feature poetry by Chavonn Shen, Nimo Farah, Teresa Ortiz, Lisa Yankton, and many more.
The Riverside Park Sound Garden event is a free, family-friendly, self-guided event that features a sound installation of 70+ small, wireless speakers, distributed throughout a section of the park, with live accompaniment by roving musicians and dancers, and live poetry and site-specific visual art. Each small speaker is playing a different part of the whole piece of music, creating a unique, immersive experience that is described as “A Concert You Can Move Through”.
This activity is part of the Peoples Center & Clinics’ “Because Your Health Matters” community wellness initiative in partnership with Wavelets Creative.
