Lantern Building and Performance Workshop
Join interdisciplinary artist David Lane for a unique sculpture workshop building illuminated lantern puppets and preparing for an outdoor event at the end of the week to show off the finished work. Using reed, wire and cloth, participants will design and build articulate, abstract lanterns which will be set aglow with LED string lights. The resulting sculptures will be the centerpiece of a collective walk-about set against the darkened late-summer sky. In addition to luxurious studio time, David will lead low-impact movement exercises based in Laban dance theory on the picturesque Snow Farm fields. Create among the daisies and monarchs during the day, and explore the lantern-filled night among the glow-bugs and the sounds of the barn owls and crickets.
