This summer everyone’s invited to the Gardner for Neighborhood Nights, a series of three fun and free interactive evenings for you and your family. Enjoy music, performance, food trucks, cash bar, gallery games, and hands-on creative experimentation inside the Museum and out.
The first event is: Life Cycle
PROGRAM FOR THE EVENING
Calderwood Hall // Vessel, 7-8 pm
Vessel is a commissioned dance theater piece led by Marsha Parrilla, artistic director of Danza Orgánica. Vessel uses the Sarcophagus (Sacred Passage), and the history of the Transatlantic Slave Trade (Middle Passage) as a point of departure to explore and question historic narratives and bring forth a fresh outlook on life, death, and revelry.
Courtyard // 5:30-8:30 pm
Musicians Ruby Rose Fox and Josh Knowles play duets and their new solo works, Salt and Spin Without A Sound.
Bertucci Education Studio // 5-8:30 pm
Join healer Luana Morales and add your mark to a communally-created sarcophagus.
Living Room // 6:15, 7:15, and 8:15 pm
Join Kadahj Bennett—actor, producer, musician, and Neighborhood Salon Luminary Artist—for a performance exploring self-analysis and growth through original songs and slam poetry.
