Join this final Art Encounter of the Olympic Sculpture Park Residency. Building upon the research and experiences accumulated throughout their residency, collaborating artists Tia Kramer, Eric J. Olson, and Tamin Totzke have choreographed a new participatory performance that playfully critiques ways we interact with technology for their project Orbiting Together (Symphony no. 1).

Throughout the performance, participants will receive text messages directing them through a series of movements and imaginary landscapes. Performers embedded in the group will respond to the collective experience, expanding the limits of what feels possible. Please bring your phone and wear clothes to move in. Accommodations will be made for participants without phones.

Free with RSVP

Orbiting Together is a participatory project that uses a network of satellites flying over the Olympic Sculpture Park as triggers for text messages, encouraging participants to engage their somatic awareness and mindfulness exercises. Participants who opt in to receiving text messages create a rhizomatic positioning system composed of people in place of technology.

To opt in, text "TOGETHER" to "206 IN 01 SKY" (206.460.1759)
