“Ocean Body” Live Premiere

“Ocean Body” – The Live Premiere of the Commission from 2019 Hermitage Greenfield Prize Winner Helga Davis, Saturday, March 19, 6pm. Inspired by the deep friendship between Hermitage Greenfield Prize winner Helga Davis and her collaborator Shara Nova, and forged on the beach of Manasota Key, “Ocean Body” is a multi-disciplinary exploration of the ties that bind us all. Inhabiting a living sculpture that unites Helga and Shara and surrounded by projections of the vast ocean, the debut of this commission premieres in an innovative musical and visual experience, enhanced by live music and a diverse chorus of voices. This event is presented in partnership with the Greenfield Foundation, Community Foundation of Sarasota County, EnsembleNewSRQ, and New College of Florida. Registration is required at HermitageArtistRetreat.org ($5/household registration fee for virtual, streaming access; A limited number of in-person tickets available for $25).
