Burial Garment - Kate Hoover

The rule of simplicity that works so well in life also works great after death. Many families are now opting for burial shrouds instead of, or in addition to caskets to bury loved ones, asserting greater creative control over the aesthetics of the traditional American funeral. Join death educator Amy Cunningham for an engaging discussion of how shrouds and garments have been used for over a millennia in cultures across the globe. She’ll also explore present-day, eco-friendly shroud making, including the work of several clever designers who hope we’ll start taking our final outfits as seriously as we select what we don every day.

Graveyard Shift: Yonatan Gat

Saturday, July 27, 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Pioneer Works and The Green-Wood Cemetery present a new site-specific series featuring commissioned multidisciplinary works of music and dance.

The first commission for Graveyard Shift is a site-specific performance by musician Yonatan Gat and the Eastern Medicine Singers, a multicultural collaboration between the acclaimed guitarist and a Native American group. Gat came to the spotlight 15 years ago in the nexus of experimental music and performance art as a founder of Monotonix, which SPIN hailed as “the most exciting live band in rock’n’roll”. His billboard-charting sophomore LP, Universalists introduced the career-redefining performance of Medicine, which integrated the hypnotic drumming and chants of the Algonquin pow wow group the Eastern Medicine Singers.
