Performances: Gateway Performance; Trevor Jones; Christ, Lord
Special Performances in Historic Fourth Ward Park
Art on the Atlanta BeltLine presents three performances in the outdoor theater in Historic Fourth Ward Park.
- 6 pm: Gateway Performance Productions: Year of the Dragon
The creation of this project was inspired by two powerful time periods – the Chinese Year of the Dragon and the annual late fall season celebrated world-wide by traditions in various countries. Gateway’s artists utilize the qualities and images of these periods to create a series of community art events and activities that focus on the transformational power of masks and the year 2012 coupled with the late fall season to align art and landscape with community gathering and celebration.
- 6 pm: Eyedrum: Free Poems on Demand
Ongoing throughout the evening. Poets will take your themes and compose a poem for you in 30 minutes or less. FREE!
- 7 pm: Trevor Jones and The Collective Project: Prometheus the Fire
Prometheus the Fire is an orginial play by Trevor Jones in collaboration with The Collective Project, Inc. that introduces Atlanta audiences to traditional methods of Greek mask theatre and reintroduce the theatre community to outdoor performance. Three actors share the roles of Prometheus, Gaia, the Oracles, Epimetheus, and Zeus. A chorus of four accompanies the actors, vocalizing the musicality of the xcript.
- 8 pm: Christ, Lord: TANZPLATZ
Kevin Bacon walks into a bar…Christ, Lord is bathed in the smokey cries of vaudeville, covered in the wizened breath of Eastern Europe, and stepped in the fluid movement of America’s music, North, South and apocalyptic. The six members (Adam Mincey, Billy Mitchell, Brandon Camarda, Christian Ballew, Ryan Gregory and Ryan Lamb) capture raw darkness, energy, and passion, delivering a potion half refined, half ramshackle.
Feel free to bring chairs, a blanket, a picnic basket, dogs, etc. for a unique evening!
