FULL DISCLOSURE FESTIVAL
Eggtooth Productions presents The Full Disclosure Festival on June 10 and 11, 2016 in downtown Greenfield, Massachusetts. Performance art, installation art, visual art, and art not yet named will be performed and installed throughout the streets, in movement, and on the Common will focus on the theme of AGAINST THE CURRENT: HUMAN IMPACT UPON PLACE.Maps with art/artists locations and schedule will be available at Artsblock on the nights of the Festival!
The idea is this: We connect climatologists, anthropologists, and historians with artists to find new ways to express what we know and what we don't know about the state of our earth past, present, and future. By connecting artists with researchers we allow the Artist to translate the academic language of Science and History into a populist language of ART. This is a way to bring academic knowledge to the public in an affective way; to touch them and incite them to action, to engage them in conversation, and to encourage reflection so that scholarly data may be experienced in an embodied way.
A centerpiece of the Festival is Emma Ayres' new production of The Water Project, a music theaterpiece adapted/inspired by Letting Swift River Go by Jane Yolen about the expropriation of towns to create the Quabbin Reservoir that will be performed each night on the 4th Floor of Artsblock. Her work blends the history of the disincorporation and destruction, in April 1938, of four towns in Franklin County with our present conflicts with power, politics, and natural resources in a unique view of man's impact upon the environment.
We will also offer a reading of Poetry on the MainStage of Artsblock that features poet Hildred Crill, https://womensquarterlyconversation.com/2011/09... is a renowned and important poet who will be performing her new cycle of poems, Human Appropriation, live at the Full Disclosure Festival at Artsblock's main floor June 10-11, 2016 at 5pm. Lori Holmes Clark is creating and performing new choreography for six dancers, set to Human Appropriation.
