Ben Muessig of the Brooklyn Paper has a nice little writeup leading into October 10th’s Angels & Accordions.
The Green-Wood Cemetery is the final resting place for more than 560,000 Brooklynites, but it only takes 30 dancers and a troupe of accordion players to make it come to life.
Check out the article for more goodies, including quotes from DTE Executive Director (& Angels auteur), Martha Bowers, and stay tuned to the blog for Angel-y updates as we countdown to 10/10. If you still don’t know what Angels & Accordions is, head over to the official performance webpage.
BROOKLYN UTOPIAS? Artists consider differing visions of an ideal Brooklyn is an exhibit currently showing at the Old Stone House in Park Slope. DTE teaching artist Eduardo Rabel has an installation in the exhibit, “Garden of Brooklyn Dreams.”
