PERFORMANCE EVENT

HEIDI WIREN BARTLETT & COLLABORATORS

KARL STIRNER ARTS TRAIL | PERFORMANCE STARTS AT THE PEDESTRIAN BRIDGE SILK Upriver is a project including a series of sculptures culminating in a performance event on Bushkill Creek. Debuting on July 8, the work is an active collaboration with local artists, scholars, geologists, musicians, and engineers. In a procession down the Karl Stirner Arts Trail, stories will be told, action will transform, and each element will be constructed to reflect the potent history of the Lehigh Valley and mythologies of “The Place at the Forks.” There will be sacred rocks, iron, steel, hex signs, and witches. It should be known, in the end, what is left was already upriver.

Reservations Requested. Email:info@karlstirnerartstrail.org Subject: Sound Bath Reservations

During this sound meditation, your only task is to be comfortable. Blankets, pillows, and comfortable mats are provided, but feel free to bring your own. A gently guided relaxation experience will be followed by the sounds of crystal singing bowls, gongs, and the sounds of other instruments. The nature of these sounds can support movement through emotions and deepen awareness.
