Spread Art is excited to present The Cocoon Project @ Clark Park as part of Clark Park's Summer Festival! The Cocoon Project creates interactive performance art and colorful temporary installations with a hand-crafted fabric Cocoon.
Saturday August 10th
12pm to 6pm
Various locations throughout Clark Park
Inside the Cocoon, performers use gestures, poses and noises to express ideas about form and movement in space and memory. Movement is based in yoga and expressive, creaturely dance. Structurally, these postures represent a scale model of an architecture based on the forces of the body. Community workshops invite visitors to try this unique experience.
The fabric Cocoon is a bright and colorful world that invites you to transform your body into Art, and explore the freedom it gives you to express yourself with energetic movement.
