Beacon Fire
World Premier: Original dance and music created for and performed at Cold Hollow Sculpture Park

About this event

Cold Hollow Sculpture Park 2021 Artists-in-Residence, choreographer Laurel Jenkins and composer Matthew Evan Taylor, perform Beacon Fire, an original composition for Cold Hollow Sculpture Park. Their immense multi-month effort to create a fleeting experience will ask us to consider the reasons to make things that disappear from sight, sound and place. The ephemeral performance will offer stark contrast to the very solid sculptures it will happen amongst.  Jenkins and Taylor make work to build community as well as art, and after the performance they will lead a conversation about community building as the motivation for artistic pursuits.

Beacon Fire is the second in our 2021 series Why We Make Things.

Event is free and in the case of severely inclement weather will be held on Sunday, August 22nd at 2PM.
