Join us to celebrate Juneteenth!
Hill-Stead is once again hosting this event as part of a month-long series of Juneteenth celebrations taking place throughout the region. Inspired by Juneteenth picnics, please join us for an evening of discovery and celebration featuring a dance performance by Lauren Horn.
Lauren Horn is a movement and text based artist from Windsor, CT. She graduated from Amherst College with degrees in Psychology and Theatre and Dance. Lauren’s work explores identity and the ways it can be uncovered, marginalized, highlighted, and erased. By utilizing movement and text as means of fostering a more welcoming form of vulnerability, the work creates a space for self-reflection and conversation for both the performer and viewer. Another aspect of Lauren’s work is entrenched in creating a dialogue around our current society’s relationship to technology. From the Silent Generation to Generation Z, she wants to understand how groups of individuals, in each living generation, feel that technology has affected their expression of their true self. Lauren’s choreographic work has been showcased at The BAM Fisher Theatre in Brooklyn, NYC, The Boston Institute of Contemporary Art in Boston, MA, Hibernian Hall in Boston MA, The Meydenbauer Center Theatre in Belleview, WA,  The Armory in Sommerville, The Studio of Contemporary Dance and Thought in Northampton, MA, The Northampton Center for the Arts, Amherst College and ACDFA New England.
The performance will take place on the West Lawn. Please bring chairs or blanket, and a picnic.
