The Market Path in Highland Square (next to Chipotle) is hosting Heads Up Productions’ Summer Series, a cycle of hour-long performances devised by Heads Up company members.  Each month from June-August will feature a new program consisting of a collection of short, interrelated pieces created by the actors.  The Summer Series will takes place on the patio outside of The Market Path.

The first program is entitled Art? and will be held Friday, June 10th and Friday, June 17th at 6 pm, weather permitting.  Admission is free with a $5 suggested donation.

June’s performances ask, “What is Art?” A question that pervades Heads Up’s upcoming production of The Pillowman.  There will be six avant-garde vignettes including:

“On the Street” Interactive Arts Reporting by Margaret Lute
A Heads Up Folktale featuring Greg Grimes, Margaret Lute, Nick Kannel & Sharon Pritt
Poetry in Movement featuring Nici Romo & Nick Kannel
A Story-Song featuring Eliza Jacops, Greg Grimes & Sharon Pritt
A Composition featuring Eliza Jacops & Nici Romo
A Movement Piece featuring Margaret Lute, Eliza Jacops, Nici Romo, Greg Grimes, Nick Kannel & Sharon Pritt

Directed by India Burton
