Live Conversation

Tippet Rise on Tour: August Festival will premiere seven new short performance films between August 19 and August 22. The films capture gorgeous classical music performances in wonderful and unusual locations across the country, from a tractor barn in Colorado and Ensamble Studio’s Cyclopean House in Massachusetts to the Noguchi Museum in New York City.

Backstage Gathering:
The first night of the August Festival will kick off with a live “backstage” gathering via Zoom. Tippet Rise artistic advisor, Pedja Mužijević, and the art center’s co-founders, Cathy and Peter Halstead, will host a conversation with Ensamble Studio’s Débora Mesa and Antón García Abril. Mesa and Abril are not only the extraordinary visionaries behind the Cyclopean House in Brookline, Massachusetts, here at Tippet Rise they created three much-loved sculptural landmarks: the Domo, the Beartooth Portal, and the Inverted Portal.

During the gathering, you are welcome to turn your camera on or leave it off. The link to participate will become available on August 19.
