InTRANSIT – Friday, September 4, 2020, at 6-7:00pm
InTRANSIT is a walk, bike, drive-by migratory, outdoor performance taking place in various locations of the Grand Center Arts District in St. Louis. In an effort to work together as a creative community, 20+ dancers and a handful of musicians offer viewers an opportunity to experience these beautiful art forms in real time and socially distant space.
Between 6:00-6:30pm, five groups of dancers and musicians will perform simultaneously at five different locations within the Grand Center area. Viewers can watch the performances at the Grand Center Arts Academy Plaza, The Sheldon (on the steps and plaza), and Park-Like (across from the Pulitzer Arts Foundation).
Viewers are welcome to walk, bike, or drive to one of the other listed locations between 6-6:30pm to see different groups of performers in different spaces. To conclude the program, the dancers and musicians will travel from their on-site locations to Strauss Park for the final ensemble performance between 6:45-7pm.InTRANSIT is a free public performance. To prevent social gatherings of large groups, no seating will be provided.
