Be Coming Birds: Alfred Summer Arts Festival
July 15 @ 8:30 pm
How do we be come birds? It all starts with paper and a method called Nebuta. Leading into the festival week artist George Ferrandi will teach participants this handmade process and on the evening of July 15th these creatures will take flight in a parade down Main Street accompanied by low-fi radio music orchestrated by Kathy Kennedy. Join us to release these illuminated birds into the night sky or grab a radio and join Kathy in the musical creation. Together we will make our way towards the Village Hall, where choreographer Sandy Silva and her ensemble will usher us into the space filled with rhythm, voice, and movement.
Alfred University is piloting a unique summer festival for interdisciplinary collaboration designed as a creative incubator for artists to interact with other artists. Directed by Stanzi Vaubel, PhD, of The Indeterminacy Festival, these nightly “salon style” events are intended to share the work and process of this years visiting and emerging artists with Alfred community and festival participants.
