Give Your Heart is a participatory sound performance designed to both involve and reflect the Philadelphia community. Participants will be able to add their heartbeats to an improvisational sound score, both generated and enjoyed by Philadelphians.
Free / 60 minutes
Using medical technology, audience members will have their heartbeats recorded, looped, and played back into LOVE Park as an abstract soundscape, reminiscent of a communal drum circle.

Rain dates: Sept 16 & 18 at noon
Happy Hour on the Fringe
On this episode of Happy Hour on the Fringe, we share a drink with Marc Wilken from Parks and Recreation and three independent Fringe Festival artists: Dana Suleymanova (Dear qupid), Eric Thayer (Give Your Heart), and Leah Stein with Asimina Chremos (RISE: Relationship is Self Existing). All of the performances are participatory and engage with the City of Brotherly Love as they explore love, the beating heart, and how human bodies share space in LOVE Park this September.
