Open Rehearsal with Lori Goldston

Saturday, December 12, 2015
2:00 – 5:00 pm

Frye Galleries

Pollen is a suite of scores that create a space for collective vision among and between performers and observers from similar or widely divergent backgrounds. The scores are a means of conveyance for ideas, atmospheres, ways of working from person to person, and place to place, and collective envisioning.

The scores will be premiered throughout a three-day residency of open rehearsals and informal performances in the Large Greathouse Gallery as a platform to bring ideas, intuition, experience, and a receptive presence with the audience and the museum.

Commissioned by the Frye Art Museum and funded by the Frye Foundation and the Hugh and Jane Ferguson Foundation.
