Emergence

Lora Robertson's avatar Lora Robertson

This project activates at dusk with film screenings and live performances. Emergence is a guide for how to gather again while living through a pandemic. A 30- foot cedar tree is veiled as a bride would be to catch projection and provide a backdrop for performance. This cedar has a distinct sense of place and will stand in contrast to the landscaped trees in the park as a reminder to get back to nature. The plaza will be a lively place with a schedule of performance and film. This sculptural intervention disrupts the original design intent of a proscenium stage and creates a theatre in the round presentation, an experience that is immersive for both audience and performers. There are no planted seats, only roaming as the live program plays out. Please join us at The Plaza at GRAM Education Center by Louis Street.
