Upcoming programs

August 6

Heron's Fountain with Megan Gafford

Heron's Fountain is a water fountain that works without pumps, it seems miraculous -- like the mythological perpetual motion machine.  It was invented in ancient Greece by Heron of Alexandria. The fountain has three chambers full of water or air, and it's powered by gravity.  One would expect gravity to prevent water from flowing up, however in this hands on workshop participants will learn how to harness gravity to push water upwards and make their own fountain with the provided materials. All ages welcome!

FREE and open to the public! All ages welcomed! Please RSVP! 

 

August 20

10 Little Gestures with Kate Speer

Come explore creating movement gestures in this bodies-on workshop. Gestures are a mode of body language used in daily life and dance composition. Participants will craft 10 little gestures based of their own personal history and uncover the unique stories of others in the room. All bodies and abilities welcome. At the end each participant will have a personal dance “phrase” to share.

FREE and open to the public! All ages welcomed! Please RSVP!


What is Make/Shift Monday? 

Make/Shift Monday is a program that encourages participants to engage with RedLine in a unique and inspiring way. Make/Shift, as the name implies, is very open-ended and each bi-weekly happening is crafted with the creative spirit in mind. The nature of programming is always thoughtful, sometimes a little wacky, and somewhat improvisatory.

Make/Shift is an opportunity for local creatives and extended members of the RedLine community to share practical skills, intellectual interests, or secret superpowers with a receptive group of peers and arts enthusiasts.

There is an endless variety of “types” of  things that could go on during a Make/Shift Monday. Past programs have included participatory concerts that involve music, poetry, improvisation, and dance where the distinctions between composer, performer, and audience member are dissolved; collaborative art activities and creative testimonials; one-of-a-kind art workshops; and many more!
