Charlotte Street Foundation identifies the needs and fuels the evolution of an ever-changing multidisciplinary arts ecosystem, acting as its primary provocateur. We cultivate the contemporary, the exceptional, and the unexpected in the practice of artists working in and engaging with the Kansas City Art Community
Featuring acting, performance and accompanying music, Parade Route is the story of two friends born on the same day, in the same Kansas hospital, and their route to coming out, of pride, of shame, of acceptance and forgiveness. This new work by David Wayne Reed in collaboration with composer Simon Fink is a multimedia storytelling experience about pride, about Kansas mythologies, the divide between nature and nurture, and the influences of Superman, Reba McEntire and Fred Phelps.
The performance takes place within Time and Memory, a week-long kinetic installation by Annie Woodfill and Luke Russell using found materials and electronics to create a stage for chance-based interactions between sound and movement.
