A core group of dancers has begun working together with common questions and concerns about water at heart. Our event is an open rehearsal, a window into how we exploring questions through movement improvisation. This event is part of our creative research for a future immersive dance theatre event on the Bay shoreline.
Also on tap, you will see footage from our video shoot during King Tide 2014 at the Hayward shoreline.
- Predictability vs. unpredictability – we don’t know when and how much water will come. This makes it hard to feed ourselves;
- Displacement – too much water or not enough forces us to move, adapt or die. This happens to plants, animals and people, entire cultures and their histories;
- Drought vs. flood – what it is to have too much or not enough water. How we hold that experience alone and together.
- We will move and talk about what we are doing. We welcome your questions.
