Commissioned by Headlands Center for the Arts, These Lines Are Living is the inaugural presentation by Fog Beast (Melecio Estrella and Andrew Ward) of a series of outdoor, site-specific performances that will take place at shorelines across the Bay Area in 2020 and beyond. Multi-generational and participatory, These Lines Are Living brings attention to how our bodies, communities, and governing institutions interact with and conceptualize shorelines in a time of accelerating climatic and social change.
Performances and activities—including a communal meal of vegan chili with fixings, cornbread, and coleslaw, served post-performance to attendees in Headlands’ Mess Hall—run from 2–5:30PM, with doors open at 1PM. In addition to the performances on March 7 and 8, visitors are encouraged to visit Fog Beast in their Project Space studio to see the work being developed in real time throughout the course of Tomorrow Is Already Here—an exhibition of work drawing from the practices of participants in Headlands’ Thematic Residencies focusing on climate change and climate equity.
Please note that the program involves walking or taking provided transport from Building 944 to Rodeo Beach. The performance component in Building 944 takes place in Headlands’ Project Space on the third floor, which is currently accessible only by stairs. Special accommodations may be possible for those requiring it. If you have any questions regarding accessibility, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
