Gary Heidt and Lawrence “Lipbone” Redding founded Lovesphere in 1995 in New York City as a 67-year project to take place every year on the Spring Equinox.  The festival has taken various forms over the years—from a six-day multi-arts festival to a musical comedy to a re-enactment of the myth of Eurydice—but this will be the first time for it to take place in North Carolina.  Redding is a native of Greenville, NC, and Heidt, a Texan by birth, “moved to Greensboro this year [2015] after nearly three decades in New York, where he was a DJ and Station Manager at WKCR-FM…[he] learned improvisation from jazz musicians and performed at the Knitting Factory, CBGB, Lincoln Center as well as across the US and around the globe-“ News and Record, Go Triad, Dec. 17, 2015.
