This winter, 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. Before the live show, here’s a look at the Movements’ incredible and moving past performance.

“We’re doing this to totally disrupt your notion of what a hip-hop show is and can be.”
