Cultural Cross Ties - Sister Cities in Conversation Is Friday

  • Thursday, May 23, 2024

Barking Legs Theater will host the premiere screening of Cultural Cross Ties - Sister Cities in Conversation on Friday at 6 p.m. This will be a free community event that is open to the public.

This past year in 2023, Barking Legs Theater’s Cultural Cross Ties project connected librarians, firefighters and artists together from Chattanooga to our Sister City Hamm, Germany. The result of their connection and conversations is an intriguing and stimulating documentary by Tane Hopper which will be shared throughout our communities beginning in May, said officials. 

Cultural Cross Ties began during the pandemic in 2020. While everyone was in isolation, Barking Legs Theater began thinking of new ways of connecting artists from different cultures online. It reached out to the Sister City Association to propose this idea as a way to create meaningful connections with our Sister Cities when we could not connect in person. The focus of the project is sharing cultures through conversation and through art - dance, vocal, visual, performance, literary, film, and others.

Participants included videographer Tane Hopper, librarian Lyn Hunter, firefighter Allen Green, and artist Denise Shropshire.
