Sara Roberts, Clump and Whistle
600 E. Broadway
Glendale, CA 900
Clump and Whistle is an emergent performance for up to 100 participants based on principles extrapolated from Elias Canetti’s book Crowds and Power.
The public is invited to join Machine Project and artist Sara Roberts for two participatory performances. Clump is an experiment in group/crowd behavior, based on a simple rule set but without fixed outcome or direction. In Whistle the crowd, equipped with multi-pitched whistles, configures to play compositions based on what the person next to you has just done, making propagating sound waves.
Fee and open to the public. Glendale Civic Center Plaza, Broadway and Glendale Ave, Glendale, CA. Civic Center parking on Wilson Ave.
Note: there will be two open rehearsals for this event: Saturday, May 11, 2:00 – 3:30 pm at Elysian Park – West side of Stadium Way just below Academy Road, and Wednesday, May 15, 5:00 – 6:30pm at CalArts.
