Site/Sound: Storytelling with Auntie Kym
Wednesday October 16th, 2019 | 6pm-8pm | Free To Attend

ABOUT THE EVENT

Poet and artist Kymberlee Johnson-Norfleet, aka Auntie Kym, will host a powerful evening of storytelling, poetry, and music exploring the histories of the Rail Road. Along with friends, she will use ritual, personal narrative, spirituals and song, and conversation to meditate on the beauty, struggle, and symbolism of the American rails.

Through soundscapes, large-scale projections, pop-up experiences, film screenings, live music and dance performances, special tours, and family programming, Site/Sound will activate the Rail Park’s current quarter-mile of elevated green space—while inviting the public to envision its future path, both above and below the cityscape. The three core installations take place in various locations bounded by Vine & Spring Garden Streets and 9th & 18th Streets.
