Echo Chambers: High Art at CounterPulse
Saturday, March 16, 2019 at 7:30 PM – 9 PM
CounterPulse 80 Turk St, SF CA
PROJECT WHAT’S IN YOUR HEART
CounterPulse teams up with dancers and digital artists of Kinetech Arts and award-winning cellist, Joshua McClain, to bring you an experiential cannabis-infused event like no other: Echo Chambers...
...a human pulse reverberates and beckons the audience into a kaleidoscope of stunning dancing, visuals and deep vibrations. As the cello’s soul sings, dancers's fluid movements spark freedom within the collective hearts of all gathered. Together, we will interconnect through an immersive web of visual projections, a live-broadcast of the human heart, and the singing voice of the cello. You are invited to dance, connect, feel, and embody it all as an immersive experience. Let us elevate together.
The immersive experience seamlessly flows into a transformative cello concert by Joshua McClain.
PRE-SHOW HANGOUT AT Moe Greens AT 6PM! JOIN US FOR CANNABIS TREATS BEFORE EXPERIENCING ECHO CHAMBERS.
High Art at CounterPulse is a non-consumption event (come to Moe Greens @6pm for consumption). Please arrive early to enjoy the full experience.
Echo Chambers: High Art at CounterPulse is part of To Be Free: CounterPulse Festival 2019
