Dallas Arts District presents Changing Perspectives Block Party
In celebration of Dallas Arts Month, the Dallas Arts District is hosting Changing Perspectives, a block party featuring two performances by celebrated Australia's Strange Fruit, a performing arts company that produces and performs a remarkable style of work that fuses theatre, dance and circus atop 15-foot sway poles.
Dallas' Skyline High School Band kicks off the party at 6 p.m. followed by Booker T. Washington High School for the Performing and Visual Arts' Gospel Choir. Throughout the evening, there will be performances on the community stage in Elaine D. and Charles A. Sammons Park and throughout the festival footprint. Australia's Strange Fruit will perform The Spheres at 8:30 and 10 pm.
Other block party highlights include performances by North Texas-based artists Jessie Frye, Bandan Koro African Drum and Dance Ensemble, Alebrije, The Bralettes, and one-of-a-kind items from a local Makers and Artisans Faire, food truck fare and libations, a gif photo booth, live speed painting, dancing in the street and more.
