The Valley Box Project: A Performance Art event at MarinMOCA

Friday May 5th: 6pm
Make it a date night! On Friday May 5th the Museum will stay open extended hours until 7PM.
Saturday May 6th: 11:30am, 2:30pm, 4:30pm

MarinMOCA is pleased to present The Valley Box Project. A solo performance by dancer and artist Jordan Hayes, that combines dance and visual art. The Valley Box Project is a marriage of Jordan's experience: her world of art, lived in privacy and isolation, and her world of dance, lived publicly and out in the open. Jordan combines dance, visual art and video projection, all contained within a 7' x 7' x 7' box, for a truly original performance art piece.

The 20 minute performance occurs on Friday, May 5th at 6 pm and again on Saturday, May 6th, with three performances at 11:30 am, 2:30 pm and 4:30 pm.

This event is free
