“Hey Mary!” Soundscape for series project created by Salome Asega and Keenan MacWilliam
Saturday, September 28, 2019
On the Spur, at 30th Street & 10th Avenue
An afternoon of hand clapping performances and a demo that speculates on the future of the High Line and neighboring Hudson Yards.
In partnership with young step dancers, Asega and MacWilliam restyle classic hand clapping games to parse through the dimensions of public space and the different ways young people move through them. This is a performance about boldly taking up space. The soundscape for this participatory, immersive project was created by Sienna Fekete and Color Plus.
