4th Annual CREPUSCULE: A MULTI-Arts Community PERFORMANCE AT TWILIGHT
Wh
ere: Washington Park (North of the Seven Hills Area, I block east of King Drive at 56th
When: Sunday, October 5, 2003 - 3:00 p.m.
The Chicago Jazz & Heritage Program, (a partnership between the Jazz Institute of Chicago and the Chicago
Park District) and composer, inventor and sculptor Douglas Ewart have joined creative forces again to present
the third annual Chicago performance of Crepuscule.  Held on Sunday, October 5, 2003, in Washington Park at 3p.m.,
Crepuscule is an autumnal performance and celebration of community, creativity and the harvest of one's spirit.
Presented in Chicago for the first time in 2000, Crepuscule will once again include a special ceremony that honors
community elders, some of whom will be nominated by the participating park sites.  This performance of Crepuscule
will also
pay special tribute to educator and activist Timuel Black who celebrates his 85th birthday in December.
The Fourth Annual Crepuscule will be
dedicated to the spirit of musician/Griot Ameen Muhammad.
This
free event (the freedom jazz dance, now!) is part of the JazzCity series, presented by the Chicago Tribune.
JazzCity is a citywide program that explores cultural connections in communities throughout Chicago.

Professional and amateur artists, cultural activists, youth and community residents will gather near the Seven Hills
area of Washington Park at 3:00 p.m.  Each group or "pod" of performers then spreads out to designated locations
within the park, performing within their pod and moving around to interact with others. Audience members are
encouraged to move around the park to experience the music, theater, puppetry, or spoken words being performed
by each pod during the two-hour performance. The final coda of Crepuscule takes place at twilight when all pods
come together to perform as a community orchestra in a tribute to Timuel Black and other community elders.

Ewart, a past president of Chicago's AACM, is an internationally renowned musician and educator who has been
fashioning his own instruments since he was a very young artist.  While initially motivated by economics, he has since 
heightened his craft to the level of fine art, exhibiting work at the Art Institute of Chicago, Museum of Contemporary Art
and other museums around the world. 

This year, the Jazz Institute of Chicago welcomes the support of Kraft Foods.  Amina Dickerson, Kraft's Director of
Corporate Contributions, says that she appreciates what the Jazz Institute does,
"to assure a place for the jazz tradition in our city's cultural landscape"
and that Kraft is further pleased to be a part of
" what is growing to be a marvelous multi-generational/multi-cultural event!"

Crepuscule (pronounced as kré pus skewl) is a Latin word meaning "active at twilight or dusk" and in this case,
signifies the highly decorated and unusual looking percussion instruments Ewart constructs out of crutches, oars and skis
that are no longer suitable for their original use. Also joining Ewart in this production will be many Chicago artists and
performers, including musicians, dancers, spoken word, and puppeteers.    Ewart and other Crepuscule artists and 
performers will be conducting intensive instrument-making, performance, art, music and improvisation workshops for
youth at Kennicott, Hamilton, Sherwood, West Pullman, Palmer, NTA, Trumbull and Washington Parks from September
15 - October 5. The results of the workshops will be showcased at the festival.

Those who are interested in participating are encouraged to bring musical instruments, paper and paint,
puppets, writings, or any other tools for creative expression. For more information, please contact
the Jazz Institute of Chicago at 312.427.1676.

The Chicago Jazz and Heritage Program is a program of the Chicago Park District and the Jazz Institute of Chicago.
This program is supported in part by the Chicago Park District, the Jazz Institute of Chicago, The Chicago Tribune,
The Woods Fund of Chicago, The Gaylord and Dorothy Donnelley Foundation, The Polk Bros. Foundation, Alphawood
Foundation, a CityArts 2 grant from the City of Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs, The Illinois Arts Council,
a State agency, The National Endowment for the Arts and The Benjamin Rosenthal Foundation and Kraft Foods.
