  • Bi-annual participation in Global Water Dances

Global Water Dances-Braiding Time, Memory and Water

Sue Schroeder in collaboration with the work of Jonathan Keats (The Erosion of Time) will create Braiding Time, Memory and Water. With the braid at the core of the performance and accompanying a community based residency, the work follows the naturally-occurring art form that is composed and performed by a river as it flows. The composition is inscribed in the floodplain through ongoing performance, which can be heard by listening to changes in tone and dynamics while following the river's course. The performance of the composition varies with fluctuations in flow rate. The rivers and creeks, therefore, act as natural timekeepers and are collaborators in the performance(s).

And touring projects to include:

  • home, world premiere in southern France

Directed by Core Dance Artistic Director, Sue Schroeder (Dance Maker) and Adam Larsen (filmmaker)
