This new local production brings to life the transformational journey of a small, urban community in Akron, touched by a unique performance by internationally renowned artist Nick Cave.
In April 2019, Summit Lake community members joined Cave in staging a vibrant display of music, art and dance, providing them with an opportunity to not only showcase the talents and skills intrinsic to their own neighborhood but to also be “heard” by the surrounding area.
PBS Western Reserve commissioned Waters Media of Canton to produce this documentary. It promises an explosion of color through Cave’s signature, life-sized, dancing horses—each composed of two dancers—with choreography by William Gill. It also provides a behind-the-scenes look at one community’s commitment toward making their voices heard. movement and leave an indelible mark on our culture.
Premieres on PBS Western Reserve in 2021.
