The 2nd in the series of 16 performances in my One-year Wissahickon Park Project will take plave on Sunday Nov 4, at 10:30 AM. The site is Forbidden Drive, just south of the Mt. Airy Avenue Bridge. If you are driving, the closest entrance is on Mt. Airy Ave — take Wissahickon Ave to Mt Airy Ave, go one block west on Mt Airy Ave to the end of the road. There’s parking on the street. Walk down the path, cross the bridge and turn left (south) onto Forbidden Drive. We will be a couple minutes walk from there.
Collaborating with me on this performance are dancers Shavon Norris, Jumatatu Poe, Olive Prince, and Noemí Segarra. Toshi Makihara and Danielle Kinne will join us again in December. The performance is free and open to the public. It will run for approximately 45 minutes, rain or shine. Cancellation only in extreme weather. When in doubt check the blog.
Please be advised that this is not a performance in the traditional sense; there are no “seats”. Because the performance is along Forbidden Drive, it is designed to be seen in passing. Audiences are asked to be mindful not to block the Drive.
Thanks again to all who emailed me photos of the performance on Oct 7. Those of us who were down by the creek may have missed Juamatu on the Drive. Denise Larabee sent the photo at the top.
