Jane Gotch and Justin Hundley perform
6:30-7pm between 16th and 17th Streets at Grand Street
This performance is part of a national initiative called, Better Block. As part of First Friday, Jason Roberts has brought Better Block to KC.
The “Better Block” project is a demonstration tool that revisions an area to show the potential to create a great walkable, vibrant neighborhood center. The project acts as a living charrette so that communities can actively engage in the “complete streets” buildout process and develop pop-up businesses to show the potential for revitalized economic activity in an area. Better Blocks are now being performed throughout the country, and have helped cities rapidly implement infrastructure and policy changes.

Through video, visual constructions, and live movement, the team investigates the human action of sensing. Seeker, Bystander, Sensor and Avoider, a pattern is edge of you interacting with the space.
Our creative process will put to practice the research of professor and occupational therapist, Dr. Winnie Dunn — shaping a performance that utilizes each participants (artist and viewer’s) referential world.

“Cellist Justin Cowart accompanied “and we hold tight together,” a trio by Jane Gotch. Gotch intuitively created a piece with nuance and subtle changes in energy. It hypnotized us with dynamic yet simple relationships between the dancers and a powerful cellist.”
