TILT Brass: Premiere "Runnegackonck Presencing" // Naval Cemetery Landscape at Brooklyn Navy Yards
Friday, May 20, 2016 - 12:20pm
63 Williamsburg St W, Brooklyn, NY 11249
TILT Brass Sextet participates in the opening ceremony of a new public space at the eastern edge of Brooklyn Navy Yard. A project of Brooklyn Greenway Initiative, Naval Cemetery Landscape is a "publicly-accessible green space which will revitalize the native plant and pollinator populations in the region and its design includes a raised walkway to allow visitors to enter the space without disturbing the hallowed ground (of the former Brooklyn Naval Hospital Cemetery.)"
The Sextet will premiere a new site-specific work byDirector Chris McIntyre. The new work, Runnegackonck Presencing, is named after the ancestral creek that meandered around the Hospital and Cemetery grounds on its way to the former Wallabout Bay.
