Denver Arts & Venues’ Public Art Program is pleased to announce the commission of “White Mirror” an original site-specific public dance performance for Babi Yar Park, by internationally renowned choreographer Robert Sher-Machherndl of Lemon Sponge Cake Contemporary Ballet. “White Mirror” will be performed by Lemon Sponge Cake dancers and collaborator, Sharon Wehner, Principal Dancer with Colorado Ballet.
The free performance will be held on Sunday, Oct. 4, at 6:30 p.m., at Babi Yar Park in Denver located at South Havanna Street and East Yale Avenue. Guests are encouraged to arrive early, bring a blanket or seating pad; pack a picnic dinner and stroll the park. There is no permanent seating in the park, only lawn seating.
The production of “White Mirror” marks the first time Denver Arts & Venues’ Public Art Program has commissioned dance as public art. “This performance will be a unique art experience for those in attendance, and will be well documented for those unable to attend,” says Denver Arts & Venues Public Art Manager, Michael Chavez. “We are thrilled to collaborate with Lemon Sponge Cake Contemporary Ballet to bring attention to one of Denver’s most distinctive parks.”
