Open Rehearsal for “Flying Point” at Watermill Center
June 13, 2015 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pmFree
The rich history and culture of the Shinnecock Indian Nation is not a subject that has garnered mention in history books. And it is a rare occurrence to hear first-hand accounts of the tribe’s oral history. However, the current artists-in-residence at The Watermill Center – Tomek Jeziorski, Adam Lenz, Shane Weeks & Karolina Zielińska – have had the distinct honor of documenting the powerful oral history of the Shinnecock Nation. The tribe’s stories personalize history by relating how it felt to live through historical and recent events.
The open rehearsal on Saturday, July 13 from 8 to 9:30 p.m. is a conflation of the resident artists’ research and documentation project, entitled Flying Point, and takes form as a multimedia installation, which serves as a living portrait of the contemporary Shinnecock community. The project offers a particularly poignant glimpse into the tribe’s culture and history, and dreams for the future.
