Hillside Beats: Honey + Fresh Fruit

We are bringing the dance floor to the Walker hillside for an evening inspired by the likes of Mariah, Britney, and Whitney. Quinn Villagomez hosts a full fashion moment, where the pathway becomes a runway. DJ Larry Peace warms us up with tunes, before Quinn and Rox go live on their show Fresh Fruit on KFAI. See the debut of Honey, a dance landscape of individuals in pursuit of expression, inspired by the bodies, movement, and music of club spaces. Performance space as dancefloor, dancefloor as agent of release, escape, and reunion. Choreographed by Scott Stafford, original soundscape by Grammy-winning producer and DJ David Morales.
