Opening Saturday, June 12th, at 7PM
Join us for a drive-in (or bike-in or walk-in) micro-radio performance that remixes oral histories about the past year with live music and testimonials. Tune in your car stereo (look for the sign in the parking lot), listen live at CCA, or live stream from anywhere.
Adaptive Response is produced by artists Jay Needham and Honna Veerkamp as part of Viral Silence, an initiative by NON:op Open Opera Works, supported in part by Illinois Arts Council Agency.
Viral Silence is a statewide collaborative community commissioning and virtual touring program that captures local experiences and responses to Covid-19. Three Illinois artists/teams were commissioned in the fall of 2020 to create and present sound portraits of their communities. Since then they have been working and collaborating with their communities—collecting recorded and live sound, poetry, and interviews—and holding workshops within their communities. This month their original audio/performance works are presented in a virtual tour within the community and live-streamed across the state.
