Body Of Water: A stream of creative exchange

Crimson Coast Dance

Press Release

Tuesday, May 9 2017

Water is personal. Water is political. Water is essential.  Water is spiritual. What is water to you? Water has always connected this country. Let’s see how it connects us.

Registered participants, 15 years old and up will create and perform within a site-specific context with guest artists. 

The workshop will take place from May 15-20. You choose which of the 3 daily 2 hour sessions to join…or join them all for the same price of $50; 9:30am, 2:00pm, 6:00pm.

No experience necessary! This is perfect for the general public, dancers, actors, musicians and movers of all cultural heritages and mostly for people who love water! The goal of the project is to find shared roots in this place we call home, to build community and inspire water stewardship through creativity with, around and in local waters on Snuneymuxw Territory.

You will gain a deep connection to our environmental waters, other participants and to yourself through participating in this meaningful creative exchange.

Technical rehearsal and performance is May 20. The performance is open to the public. Performance tickets are available online.

Conceived and directed by Nicole (Springboard Performance, Calgary, AB), She, Danielea Castell (BC/China), and Genevieve Johnson will work closely to facilitate participants to create a site-specific performance piece together called Body of Water.
