(sub)Urban Projections lights up three venues in downtown Eugene with a fusion of light, color, digital projections, music and dance. This free festival is a collaboration between the City of Eugene Cultural Services Division, the University of Oregon Arts Administration program, and artists coming together to create a vibrant and colorful environment fostering conversation and appreciation for contemporary art and new media. Through multi-media arts, (sub)Urban Projections champions original art, cultivates community, and generates vibrancy in downtown.
On Wednesday, Jan. 29, at 7 p.m., at Oregon Contemporary Theater (OCT), 194 West Broadway, Ballet Fantastique and Jeremy Bronson collaborate to explore the rich legends and myths of Japan. The work brings to life ancient legends of samurai adventure, romance, and the supernatural through dance, video, and motion graphics. This is an intimate performance, bringing the audience close to dancers bathed in projection, and the opportunity to talk with the artists afterwards.
Thursday, Jan. 30 at 8 p.m., at the Hult Center Lobby, Harmonic Laboratory uses staircases, walls, hallways, ceilings and spaces-in-between to re-invent public space. Dance, sound art, music, sculpture, large-scale kinetic installation, interactive body tracking, and visual art all come together as artists push the margins of their field to create new works made possible only through collaboration.
Friday, Jan. 31 at 7 p.m., at Ninkasi Brewing Company, 272 Van Buren, celebrate community, collaboration, artistry and creative exploration at a reception for the (sub)Urban Projections team and featured artists. Join them for good brew, good conversation and a chance to make an artistic mark with digital graffiti on the Ninkasi patio during Last Friday Art Walk.
All three of these events are free. For further information, contact Cultural Services Marketing and Public Relations Manager Libby Tower at 541-682-8380 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
