As a continuation of Nick Cave’s performance series, Cranbrook Art Museum presented Heard•Detroit on September 26, 2015 at Milliken State Park in downtown Detroit.
Working in partnership with the Detroit RiverFront Conservancy and the Michigan DNR Outdoor Adventure Center, the project featured 30 life-size horse sculptures performing along the Detroit riverfront. The sculptures were operated by 60 dancers from the Detroit School of Arts and the Maggie Allesee Department of Theater and Dance at Wayne State University. According to Cave, the project was intended to be “a dreamlike vision that stops everyday life for a collective transformative moment.”
This film was created by Jamin Townsley and Andrew Miller of The Right Brothers, the Detroit-based production company who has been responsible for all of the films featuring the Nick Cave: Here Hear project.
