2015 Meadows Prize winner Complex Movements brings its multimedia performance art pod to the Tower Building in Fair Park for a month-long engagement. Part musical performance, part visual art installation and part community organizing tool, Beware of the Dandelions tells a sci-fi story of building a movement from the grassroots up and is performed for groups of 35 people at a time inside the pod, a 400-square-foot polyhedron that serves as an immersive performance art space (See below for the performance schedule).
