7.27– In Bright Axiom Screening
Imagine you’re handed an invitation with an address and an access code, but little to no other information. Do you go inside? If you’re brave enough to enter, what you’ll find on the other side of the door, through dark mazes and down twisting slides, is The Latitude Society, a secret group of curious and creative minds brought together to create transformative experiences.
Where: Esquire Theatre, 320 Ludlow Ave.Cincinnati, OH 45220
Tickets: $10, purchase here
8.3 – CSO Look Around (Free Community Event)
The Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra, along with 30 local groups including choirs, instrumental ensembles and dancers, create a musical event extending from Ziegler Park to Washington Park. The title of this event is borrowed from a poem entitled "Lost Generation" by Cincinnati artist Siri Imani - Artist Page.
Artists and audience become one as they move throughout the neighborhood — inviting friends and neighbors to join in, simply listen, or look around — while performing music by co-creators Shara Nova (composer) and Mark DeChiazza (director/choreographer).
Where: Ziegler Park to Washington Park in Over-the-Rhine
When: 7 PM – 9 PM
Details: No tickets are required. How you choose to experience the event is up to you.
