Time: 7:30 pm Performance: Silo City, 85 Silo City Row. Buffalo, NY 14212 Tickets: $30 General
Every Summer since 2013, Torn Space has designed a site-based performance on the grounds of the expansive and majestic Silo City. This year TST explores new terrain with their original work, and the sun sets in golden circles.
Engage in competition and cooperation with the society and the community as Torn Space repositions field day events and confronts the questions:
Where do we come from?
Why are we here?
Where are we going?
Audiences will collectively view the opening ceremonies on the newly designed soccer pitch at Silo City, be broken up into groups of 25 to experience individual stations of field games while listening to the history of the universe, enjoy occasional stops at beverage areas, and then come together around the magnificent cottonwood tree at dusk for the final story.
Audience Note: Audiences are asked to wear white, off white or light grey outfits.
Customized bandanas will be provided to help organize audiences into three groups- Stag, Snake or Hawk
