Event description


Calling all local Fort Greene Locals

Strike Anywhere Performance Ensemble (NYC) and the Tours Soundpainting Orchestra (France) have teamed up with the Irondale Ensemble Project (Fort Greene, Brooklyn) to bring you "POP UP: An Artistic Treasure Hunt". A show by and for Fort Greene! They are offering Free Soundpainting Workshops and invite any workshop participants to take part in the finale of POP UP.


POP UP is an immersive outdoor artistic treasure hunt where you follow clues on a hand-painted map to discover mini performances that pop up throughout Fort Greene, Brooklyn. Inspired by interviews with local Fort Greene residents, POP UP will be performed by a collective of multidisciplinary performers in public spaces scattered around the neighborhood of inspiration. The performances are composed in real-time via Soundpainting, a live-composing sign language that allows a conductor to communicate directly with improvising performers (dancers, actors, musicians) and sculpt the performance as it is happening.

Fort Greene Locals are invited to take part! Free Soundpainting workshops are offered at Irondale to anyone who wants to join. Soundpainting is a sign language that allows a group of actors, dancers, singers and musicians to improvise together. All experience levels welcome! Meet your neighbors, enjoy something new and take part in a sweeping celebration of Fort Greene!
