CMOA: Performers at Play
Our residency at the Carnegie Museum of Art continues with two Social Ceremonies, open to public participation. What are social ceremonies? Here’s a description from the Master of Ceremonies, Connor Sites Bowen.
As social animals, our perceptions are tuned to human interaction. Humans are amazing communicators - we use all our senses to make our thoughts and intentions known to each other. Furthermore, we can coordinate our actions and activities into civilizations. The social senses can be developed by communities to create holidays, rituals, and celebrations to knit us closer to each other.
Join City of Play and Connor Sites-Bowen for two Social Ceremonies this summer - secular ritual games, played as a group within the walls of the museum. Together, we have immeasurable ability. Families welcome, though players may be asked to separate from the group they arrived with. Engage your senses, befriend new neighbors, explore the museum’s collection, and cultivate mindfulness August 29th and September 7th.
August 29th, 6pm
September 7th, 10am
