Saturday, August 27th, 5:30-7:30El is a Sound of Joy at  Steelworkers Park (East 87th at Lake Michigan) 
Inner ear exercises and improvisations at the steel shore
This Saturday, El is a Sound of Joy is continuing a series of collaborative projects in Steelworker's Park with artists Bridget Bancroft and Katharina Ritter.  Join us for an afternoon of exploratory movement exercises and solar powered music.

Taking place throughout the park, this participatory workshop presents accessible movement methods for exploring the embodied interactions of vision, sound, and physical balance. Exercises are inspired by the natural and social history of Steelworkers Park, the rooting habits of trees, the rhythms of machines, and the movement and balance of the body with respect to gravity, sound, and everyday objects.  

Visiting Steelworker's Park you will find the complex entanglements of nature returning to this site of former industry, where cottonwood trees grow alongside ore walls, and the lake's wave pass through barge slips.  

Also,  later that evening at Steelworkers Park: The Chicago Astronomer Joe Guzman will be offering public telescope viewing until 2:00am.  

This free program is presented as part of the Chicago Park District’s Night Out in the Parks series.

New Album available from No Index Recordings
