Two Free Events on South Lake
TRANSITIONS: A Pop-Up Poetry Project
Friday June 22nd, starting around noon
at the Shops on Lake near Trader Joes and the Corner Bakery
345 S Lake in Pasadena
Curated by Pat Payne
Pasadena will be treated to a site-specific lunchtime surprise poetry-reading relay by a rotating band of poet/storyteller/dancers who will travel between a couple different locations on South Lake Avenue. The event takes place simultaneously on multiple levels of the complex and even between levels: poets will read poetry from different locations, relocate and interact with other performers as they travel and repeat. The performance will pop-up around noon time to grab the lunch hour folks by surprise and they will continue to cycle through the space for the next 90 minutes.
Presented with the support of the City of Pasadena Cultural Affairs Division and The Pasadena Arts Commission as well as the assistance of Eva Kim & Vornado Realty
