DLECTRICITY™ was scheduled for September 22 & 23, 2017, in Midtown Detroit and showcased 36 artists from Detroit and around the world from the DIA to MOCAD. Please check back often as we continue to share photos and video from the festival.
Location: The First Congregational Church
Every Side of Here uses light, audio, and movement to evoke a spectrum of sacred experiences. Moving through the lifespan of a day, the project draws from personal routines, nature, club culture, and faith traditions. Live-projected stained glass animation and sculptural metalwork layer with electronic sound and silhouetted performers to create a saturated encounter that seeks wonder in unexpected places.
The audience is invited to join us in creating a participatory mural that explores diverse ideas about “the sacred.” Performances will take place in the courtyard lawn at First Congregational Church. Audience members enter an interactive stage space through a metal and stained glass archway. Performances run for 30 minutes and recur on the half hour mark of each hour throughout the night, starting at 7:30pm.
