The Bonfils-Stanton Foundation presents Denver Night, a free public event celebrating Denver’s unique cultural community. Adam Lerner and Chris Kallmyer have curated an eclectic evening of music and art, including folk, classical, jazz, rock and avant-garde music in addition to video, art, sculpture, and dance. Contemporary artist Nick Cave will transform Civic Center Park with HEARD•DAM, a specifically choreographed performance in connection with Cave’s exhibition at the Denver Art Museum, Nick Cave: Sojourn.

The event will feature local performers, life-sized horse Soundsuits as well as music and movement in an electrifying and inspiring performance. Made from a variety of materials, Soundsuits are wearable sculptures designed to make sounds as the wearer shimmies and shakes. The live show also includes a dog opera performance accompanied by the Colorado Symphony, as well as a special acoustic performance by members of Denver’s own, The Fray.

This event is free and open to the public!
