You're invited to Queenie's Farewell Block Party! Queenie and her neighbors at the South End Motel are getting together one last time for drinks, popsicles and games before Zenith Properties develops the block and the South End Motel is gone forever. Come explore with your neighborhood guides.

Developed as a site specific work in collaboration with the visual artists from NoVacancy, Block Party invites you into a totally immersive, sensory performance experience that explores the changing face of Charlotte neighborhoods. Performances happen inside of an art installation developed by four different Charlotte artists. Ticket cost includes drinks and treats.
