Rain or Shine, FREE

Kick off the fall season with an afternoon in West Chelsea
at The

Kitchen's neighborhood street fair produced in
collaboration with

Friends of the High Line. Lining our block of West 19th
Street will be

dozens of artist-led, free activities for the whole family
to enjoy,

as well as an entertaining mix of live music and unusual
performances!



Artists leading activities include Groovehoops, Elia Alba
and Aisha

Cousins, Johanna Almiron and Rachael Schaffran, Bozidar
Brazda, Ernest

Concepcion and Ahmed Faheem, Brian Dewan and Leon Dewan,
Michael de

Feo, Pat Hammond, Pablo Helguera, Nancy Hwang, Byron Kim
and Lisa

Sigal, Isabelle Lumpkin, Thomas Marquet, Suzi Matthews,
Adam Shecter

and Joe Winter, Ward Shelly, Shinique Smith, Bec Stupak,

The main stage will feature live music and dance
performances by DJ

Reborn, Matana Roberts & Friends (a saxophonist and her

Visitors can also cool off inside The Kitchen and view the
new

exhibition Between Thought and Sound: Graphic Notation in
Contemporary

Music, a group exhibition that explores the intersection of
drawing

composers

who relinquish traditional musical notation in favor of
their own

invented visual systems of pictorial or "graphic" elements.



Friends of the High Line is a non-profit organization
dedicated to the

preservation and reuse of the High Line, a 1.5-mile-long
historic

elevated rail structure on the West Side of Manhattan.

What does the name "Yedégbé" represent?

The name is taken from three words in the language of Fon, from the

region of Dahomey (now known as Benin). "Yedégbé" means "with the

approvals of the spirits": after they (the deities and major forces

of their pantheon) gather to decide (or grant) that something is

ready and prepared to happen. Through this project we will try to

bring back and unify the legacy that is still alive and practiced

all through the Pan-African region (including Cuba, Haiti, Dominican

Republic, Brasil, Puerto Rico, Benin and elsewhere). About the

Yedegbe Project
