The San Antonio International Airport will host a dance performance in honor of the 20th anniversary of the summer solstice, airport officials announced.

The event will begin at 2 p.m., Sunday, in the airport’s long-term parking garage, located at 9800 Airport Blvd.

Dancer, choreographer, and Artistic Director of Urban-15, Catherine Cisneros, along with artist Christopher Janney, will put on the performance to mark the longest day of the year.

Janney’s design, ”Passing Light”, is a “solar sculpture that includes large colorful plexiglass squares embedded in the ceiling that project a grid of bold colors onto the Paseo Walkway in the parking garage,” according to a news release.

Cisneros will dance simultaneously while the sun is moving to create reflections on the walls and floors, the release said.
