Starts at Union Station Streetcar Stop
CONNECTIONS is a site-specific performance piece. This mostly improvised event, as presented by Jon Michael Johnson and SITU INC., will follow one passenger as he boards the streetcar at Union Station. He will be connected with someone new at each stop as the streetcar progresses through the route. Will it be someone too different, someone too much the same, someone laughing, crying, spying, hiding, someone lost — or found?
The theater of life will play out on the enclosed “stage” of the streetcar. Each interaction should give us a glimpse into how we connect with those around us, and by extension, the community at large. As the streetcar makes its way around the route and back to Union Station, CONNECTIONS will be an opportunity to tell a few tales — some tall, some with a spark of truth — and with the telling and a little luck, maybe we can create a “connection” or two.
Make a connection on Friday, August 19 at 11:30am and again at 12:30pm, starting and ending at the Union Station Streetcar stop.
This performance is free and open to the public and is part of the 2016 Art in the Loop Project: Connect brought to you by the Art in the Loop Foundation with the support of the Downtown Council, Downtown Community Improvement District, City of Kansas City, Missouri, KC Streetcar Authority, Missouri Arts Council, Neighborhood Trust and Development Fund, ArtsKC and many corporate sponsors.
