Kyla Kegler: Mountains
Mountains is a live-directed performance by Kyla Kegler in the Artpark Amphitheater that uses big-head puppets (people wearing full-head masks), music, and cardboard scenery. The public is invited to participate in the performance as a member of the socially-distanced big-head-masked movement-choir. The not always linear narrative draws on current events and archetypal relationships to utopia and the apocalypse, struggle and triumph, and big feelings.
Conceived by Kyla Kegler
If you would like to participate in the performance of Mountains, you must make yourself a mask and procure yourself the assigned monochromatic costume. A video tutorial for making your mask will be featured as part of the Burchfield Penney Art Center's Second Friday virtual program and a materials kit will be made available through the BPAC gift shop.
You will be invited to make your choice of the following Monochromatic Choir Characters:
Pink: Pigs and Flamingos
