All Together Now


All Together Now is a multimedia series curated by Anna Rae, that combines artists from Boston and NYC, and makes space for women, POC, and LGBTQ, in partnership with cis white male allies. The multimedia aspect creates a sensory-rich experience for the audience, and combining artists from NYC and Boston enriches and celebrates our local arts dialogue.

The second show of the series, on June 25 at 9pm at the Lilypad in Inman Square, features Korean-American artists from New York and Boston. Local Boston band Hemway hosts the night for filmmaker and performance actress Hye Yun Park, performance artist and musician Diana Oh, and singer/songwriter Jane Park. “While being Korean-American is not the focus of my art,” says Jane Park, “I find it so inspiring to have found like-minded artists who came from a similar background to my own. It’s such an honor to have a chance to collaborate with them as artists.”

The diversity mission of this series gives artists room to push themselves to be more experimental and collaborative with the audience. Says Anna Rae, “We all know the power and the limitations of our respective arts, and I think there’s a sense of making something more immersive and powerful together.”

In the first All Together Now, the way the artists engaged with the audience and each other at the Lilypad was inspiring. The Grownup Noise opened with their trio of guitar, cello, and drums. Video artist Jeremy Stamas followed with a piece of untouched, ten-year old film for the first time. New York performance artist Crichton Atkinson transformed the Lily Pad into the Church of Time, preaching to an orange-masked congregation engulfed in black light. The night proceeded with live music by the melody-driven rock of Hemway. Jenee Halstead closed with her rock band and ethereal vocals.
