POP UP is an immersive outdoor artistic treasure hunt where you follow clues on a hand-painted map to discover mini performances that pop up throughout Fort Greene, Brooklyn. There will be three separate treasure hunts each with different performances. Each track lasts approximately one hour and 45 minutes. Audience members are advised to wear comfortable walking shoes. Starting location for each performance is secret and registered audience members will be notified the day before the show.
Developed by the Tours Soundpainting Orchestra (France) and the Strike Anywhere Performance Ensemble (USA), POP UP is performed by a collective of multidisciplinary performers in public spaces scattered around the neighborhood of inspiration. By injecting a series of alternately playful, poetic or poignant performances in everyday spaces, the project is designed to inspire wonder, joy and whimsy. The performances are sculpted through a live-composing sign language called Soundpainting. Strike Anywhere (SA) and the Tours Soundpainting Orchestra (TSO) are two of the top Soundpainting ensembles in the world.
With NYC as the backdrop, join this magical quest to explore the city and find beauty in everyday spaces. With 20 performers, 15 awe-inspiring performances, 15 secret locations, a one of a kind hand-drawn map, POP UP is an experience you’ll never forget. There are three different Treasure Hunts – see one or all three!
