The vacant Moran Plant on Burlington's Waterfront will be full of life this Saturday.
Burlington City Arts teamed up with nine students from Chittenden County high schools to create an interactive performance art exhibition called "Pathways: Past and Present." The event will feature live dance, music and food, as well as a student-designed computer program highlighting the connection between technology and the arts.
Pathways creators hope the event will help bring attention to the widely underutilized space.
"It seemed like a great place to showcase this idea, and also revitalize this space and get people geared up for potential renovations that will be happening in a couple years," said Catherine Siller, a creator of Pathways.
"I've been working on the programming part of it, like figuring out to code using this language called processing to make the Kinect interactive," said Amelia Payne, a student from South Burlington.
The event is free and goes from 7-10 p.m. Saturday.?
