The Common Flock is a large-scale community performance piece that draws on the historical use of the Halifax Common as an area for farmers to pasture their livestock. Using the flock as a metaphor for the coming together of a community of people, over fifty individuals will ‘flock’ across the common. The impact of a large group of people moving and dancing in unison will bring attention to the breadth of space and importance the Common has in our own community.
Meet at the North Common Public Washrooms building north of the fountain, near Cunard Street. The Common Flock ends at Common Roots Urban Farm
