FIELDWORK Equinox Event

Hi all, You are invited to a celebration of the 2013 autumn equinox at FIELDWORK on the evening of Sunday September 22nd..  There's an oversized EAR sitting in the middle of the FIELDWORK meadow patiently waiting for drummers, dancers and listeners to animate its presence.  “Keeping an Ear to the Ground” - an interactive art installation by Sheila Macdonald - features an eardrum that is waiting to be played and waiting for other drummers to bring their own drums and play along with it.  We will be creating an irresistible dance beat for all hoopers and dancers.
