For the fourth year in a row SLA students are collaborating with the Leah Stein Dance Company to create site specific performance pieces. The pieces are part of the Art in the Open Festival and will be performed on Friday, May 18th between 1:00-3:00. All performance sites are within four blocks of the school. As always, the process has been stunning to watch... (This will also be at the front door of the school on May 18th.) Click here for a printable performance schedule. Enormous thanks to all our collaborators and for all of the wonderful collaborative energy everyone is bring to the project!
