This is a collection of moments from the cistern recordings at Fort Worden in June. The second day in the underground chamber, improvisations were recorded by Beth Fleenor, Eyvind Kang, Briggan Krauss, and Maria Mannisto. Other artists featured over the 4-day residency in the bunkers and empty 2-million-gallon water reservoir:  Heather Bentley, Rowena Hammill, Steve O’Brian, Kate Olson, Victoria Parker, and Naomi Siegel.

STEP BY STEP

Things are moving along quickly for 55: Music and Dance in Concrete – September is just around the corner. In the coming weeks there will be more media, maps of the performance sites, and in-depth info from the artists working on the project.

The work will be premiered at Fort Worden as part of Centrum’s Reverberations series, in addition to the Arizona State University Art Museum. Additional site-specific versions of the piece will occur in Seattle presented by Rainier Beach Merchant Association’s (RBMA) Art Walk Rainier Beach, in association with SEEDArts, and the Royal Room.
