Best Bets for April 2019
Mass Rabble 4/3- 4/14 (Submersive Productions)
As our bodies move, we tell a story. Where we have been, where we are going, and what we hold on to, what we let go of. When bodies move in masses, they tell a larger story. Hope, fear, war, famine, the search for a better life. What does it mean to be just one body moving in humanity’s great crowd? This is a movement piece. Prepare to be moved.
Guests of all levels of physical ability are invited to join our ensemble of thirty movers in the vast space of Baltimore’s War Memorial for Submersive Production’s largest-scale work to date. As you choose your own degree of involvement, the invitation to join the rabble will remain open.
This event is brought to you in part by the War Memorial Arts Initiative, Parlights, Inc., The William G. Baker, Jr. Memorial Fund, creator of the Baker Artist Portfolios, http://www.BakerArtist.org.
