Siteworks: A Surprise Party was performed at the Albany Bulb by students of LDARCH 154/THEATER 114 Siteworks: Understanding Place through Design and Performance on April 19, 2018. This is a project of the Global Urban Humanities Initiative at UC Berkeley and generously funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. Before creating this performance, students studied the physical and emotional landscapes of the Albany Bulb and made detailed maps and sketches. They used methods from landscape architecture as well as from dance and theater to explore this unique site. Then they invited an audience to share their discoveries.
