The Weight of Air Act 1

"The Weight of Air Act 1" work-in-progress, part of Living X
Saturday, October 12 (12:00pm), CMAP, 2221 Carpenter, Hamtramck, MI

We are excited to announce that a work-in-progress showing of our new project The Weight of Air will debut on October 12 at noon, as part of Living X  programming and supported by The Kresge Foundation.

"The Weight of Air On A Body" is a contemporary puppet performance project illustrating the effects that invisible policies and practices like redlining and disinvestment in Detroit neighborhoods have had on physical space – for residents, for civil servants and on the city’s topography itself. Developed in collaboration with local and national puppet performers, we will be bringing in several artists over the next 18 months to facilitate workshops and artists talks as part of this new project - so keep in touch to get notices about how you can participate! The Weight of Air project is made possible with support from The Map Fund.
