Pre-Festival Artist Talks – June 1st

phpThumb

Join us the evening of June 1 at McNally Smith College of Music for an evening of short, rapid-fire presentations by several Northern Spark artists.

Using a Pecha Kucha format each artist or team will introduce the project they are preparing for the festival. Representing a diversity of disciplines from architecture and design to music and video to participatory dance, together these artworks are emblematic of Northern Spark as a whole: multi-media, interactive, and up all night.

The program will conclude with a Q & A moderated by festival Artistic Director Steve Dietz that aims to reveal what it means to present work in the public sphere, overnight, for thousands of people.

Presenting artists include: John Keston, Jennifer Newsome Carruthers and Tom Carruthers, Nathan Lewis and Lacey Prpic Hedtke, Ananya Dance Theater, Seitu Jones, Pritika Chowdry and more TBA.

6:30 pm Cash bar open
7:00 pm Presentations
8:00 pm Moderated Q & A
