Sibyl Kempson: 12 Shouts to the Ten Forgotten Heavens

Tuesday, March 20, 12:00 pm–1:00 pm
Whitney Museum of American Art (99 Gansevoort Street)
$10/adults, $8/members, students & seniors


Presented at the Whitney on twelve occasions, this three-year iterative performance project by American playwright, director, and performer Sibyl Kempson marks each solstice and equinox occurring between March 2016 and December 2018. The ninth Shout in this cycle celebrates the start of spring. Audience members are invited to move rhythmically to music composed by the artist Milica Paranosic, in preparation for a futuristic seed-planting ceremony in a familiar subterranean chamber. Flashes of red from deep in the Earth encourage us to take action in calling forth new life. We went to the fall equinox event, and it was as strange as it sounds – and very engaging for all ages.

Also at 2 pm, 4 pm & 6 pm.
