Be Where You Are
Zeitgeist and Barringer Family Farms present a unique outdoor experience that connects artists and community members with agriculture and land. The evening features a new work by Heather Barringer entitled 44.71, -92.53 (Be Where You Are) and additional performances intended to be experienced outdoors. 44.71, -92.53 (Be Where You Are) is a 45 minute work that explores human relationship to land and others through the experience of sound--intentional and unintentional. Sound-makers and listeners will be dispersed throughout 74 acres of farmland.
The event will begin at 6pm with a picnic gathering interspersed with performances and experiences with local artists. 44.71, -92.53 (Be Where You Are) will begin at 7:30pm. Attendees are invited to bring a picnic dinner or a potluck dish to share.
