PARK(ING) DAY – Performance in Riverside, CA

Come spend Friday in the Park with Avo!

parkingday_alldate_headerAvocado Dance Theatre will dance in a minuscule landscape, presenting a glimpse of their new work in a metered parking space in Riverside, as part of the worldwide annual event, called PARK(ing) Day.  This unique performance is an opportunity to create — more public space…to live, to breathe, to dance!

The mission of PARK(ing) Day is to call attention to the need for more urban open space, to generate critical debate around how public space is created and allocated, and to improve the quality of urban human habitat … at least until the meter runs out!

Exact location, to be revealed…soon…
