The collective emotions of those in attendance will create a visual tapestry and musical score. The audience is part-performer. Through swirling sounds and colors that grow throughout the performance into an orchestra of emotion, the audience will experience not only their own feelings but the collective feelings of everyone around them.
This is the first performance in a series of events planned throughout the year hoping to express, document and destigmatize randomized samplings of our communal emotional and mental states. Wes and Bolanle's performance was funded by a Charlottesville SOUP grant in Fall 2017.

ABOUT THE ARTISTS
Wes Swing's musical journey began as a four-year-old violinist. He developed an early appreciation for classical music, and later found his true musical love in playing and composing for cello. The revelatory nature of Swing's journey shines through on the new album. Swing’s music is featured regularly on NPR and by several modern dance companies with whom he collaborates. "The compositions, pieced together very carefully, are orchestral without orchestra. They are movements, and they are moving. They take place in that grey area between pop and symphonic." - No Depression. In addition to music, Wes is currently writing a book of short stories.
Bolanle Adeboye is a designer/maker determined to find and appreciate the exquisite in the mundane. She is very often stunned by beauty lurking in the most unlikely places. Bolanle lives and works in Charlottesville and strives to present works that are both collaborative and interactive.
