On the garage green rooftop north of Cosentino’s Downtown Market
Free and open to the public (space is limited)
Casa de Fado will perform at Prairie Logic, the public art installation on the sixth floor parking garage roof just north of Cosentino’s Downtown Market (south of 12th Street, between Main and Walnut). Prairie Logic is an award winning public artwork by Janet Zweig and el dorado inc located on the sixth floor of the green roof atop the parking garage. In addition to the artwork—a modified red box car situated amidst indigenous prairie grasses, Prairie Logic also serves as a performance stage for an intimate audience experience. This summer will see three performances by three different local artists.
Casa de Fado will transform the boxcar stage into a Portuguese taberna where Fado is performed. Fado is folk music infused with longing and melancholy, and characterized by mournful melodies and lyrics. Fado, which means fate, is powerful music, and will be performed by three guitarists and various guest vocalists. www.ensembleiberica.org
Please note: Because this is an outdoor venue, all performances are weather permitting. When possible, performances cancelled due to weather will be rescheduled at a later date. Check the Prairie Logic Facebook page for more information, www.facebook.com/PrairieLogic.
