Moving — literally — performances part of Arts Week
Dancer-musicians Zara Lawler and C. Neil Parsons will be “reverse busking.”
Lawler and Parsons were awarded a grant from IU’s Arts Week Everywhere to create Reverse BUSking, a set of five mini-performances to be performed on university buses.
Instead of passing around a hat for donations, a typical part of busking, they will reverse that dynamic, giving the bus audience free tickets to The Flute on its Feet, a performance at 8 p.m. Thursday at the Windfall Studio, 1101 N. Dunn St.
Lawler and Parsons have created vignettes with music, haiku, theater and dance to perform on the buses. Each mini-piece will be site-specific, and will be timed to the bus route, so that it can be seen in its entirety in the space of one stop, according to a news release. The five mini-pieces will be performed in succession, giving longer distance riders an extended performance experience.
The Reverse BUSking schedule is on routes A and X:
Tuesday: 7:08 p.m. and 8:18 p.m., Third & Jordan, A bus;
Wednesday: 7:27 p.m. and 8:07 p.m., Third & Jordan, D/E bus;
Thursday: 7:28 p.m., Third & Jordan, A bus; (Note: Audience members may take this bus all the way to Windfall’s studio for The Flute on its Feet, beginning at 8 p.m.)
For those who didn’t receive a free ticket, general admission to The Flute on its Feet is $10 or $5 for students.
