Santa Cruz Museum of Art & History’s New Series of Multidisciplinary Performances -- “Beyond the Grave”
Join the Santa Cruz Museum of Art & History’s (MAH) New Series of Multidisciplinary Performances at Evergreen Cemetery as Artists connect Santa Cruz County’s past with the present moment.
Artists and performers introduce new, site-specific work for this series of intimate performances. Inspired by the stories and landscape of the historic Evergreen Cemetery, dancers, spoken word artists, and musicians reimagine the space with new commissions that are inspired by the past while exploring our future.
For the inaugural weekend of Beyond the Grave, we have commissioned Opera Singer Akindele Bankole, Avant-garde Harpist Sabine Silver, and the bilingual Folk Band, “Los Brownies.” Each artist has crafted a site-specific performance that will have you swaying in your seat, looking upon the cemetery with new eyes.
The following includes the full Event Series Schedule:
• April 10th & 11th // Musical Performances
• April 24th & 25th // Spoken Word Performances
• May 15th & 16th // Dance Performances
Exploring their personal connections to the history found within the cemetery grounds, these works will connect us all to the people -- past and present -- of Santa Cruz County.
Tickets can be purchased on Eventbrite. Discounts for MAH Members are available.
