along the atlanta beltline

The following proposes a public performance within the Krog Street Tunnel, located along Atlanta’s Beltline Trail. Inspired by the Mile Long Opera, performed along the NYC HighLine in October 2018, this performance seeks to utilize a place of historic and infrastructural significance within the city of Atlanta, as an opportunity for public engagement with the historic, symbolic, and acoustic resonance of the city’s complex and layered urban fabric.
