On the evening of July 28, 2018, thirteen groups of Northside (Cincinnati) neighbors were joined by Pones dancers to perform Participation and Connection ideas that Northsiders say are central to the joyous and wonderful, challenging and imperfect work of living in a changing community.

Neighborhood performers used hand-torn and knotted fabric strands, re-purposed from clothing, linens, and other remnants that they de-constructed and re-made, to connect within and across groups as they moved from each of their thirteen places, through Northside streets, into Hoffner Park, and on to PAR-Projects art space.

This performance was part of 2018’s Cincinnati 5 exhibition, curated by Emily Moores and presented at PAR-Projects, July 28th – August 28th, 2018.
