Picture Bayview Hunters Point
Picture Bayview Hunters Point is an interdisciplinary site‐specific performance that focuses on the dreams and aspirations of local residents. Created by Joanna Haigood of Zaccho Dance Theatre, the piece will take place at the historic Bayview Opera House and incorporates aerial dance performed by members of Zaccho Dance Theatre, music by composer Walter Kitundu, video projections from artist Mary Ellen Strom and oral histories recorded by BAYCAT and other community collaborators. The groups will document community events, conduct interviews, and explore the types of movement and dance that characterize their neighborhood. Set to take place in October 2018, we invite your participation as we embark on this exciting community project. #PictureBVHP @PictureBVHP
