Spirit and Place Festival: The World We Live(d) In
A juxtaposition of the social justice climate of yesterday and today interpreted through poetry and dance.
How have our views on issues like race, inequality, climate change, gender, and immigration changed through the course of history? How have poets interpreted these views? The Indiana Writers Center has combed their online literary journal, “Flying Island,” and other sources for work from the recent and not so recent past to juxtapose with contemporary writing submitted by Central Indiana residents in an anthology released during the festival. Dance Kaleidoscope dancers will create a visual comparison of these selections through original choreography presented at the JCC on Sunday, November 10. Performance attendees will also have the opportunity to create their own “blackout” or “book” poems in a guided art-making experience with Indianapolis Art Center teaching artists. Through this program, we hope to explore the evolution of our community’s ideas, values, and revolutionary thoughts.
