RESONANT STREAMS: AN ANCIENT CALL - St John the Divine, 2011
Resonant Streams: An Ancient Call was presented at the Cathedral of St John the Divine in New York City and featured a cast of ten dancers, three live musicians, two multimedia artists creating virtual sets and costumes and guest appearances by visionary Continuum Movement founder Emilie Conrad and noted author, storyteller and African spiritual leader Luisah Teish.
Created for the Cathedral's The Value of Water series of programs and visual art exhibit, Resonant Streams offers an experience of ourselves as water, of our interconnectedness to all water everywhere, and of our origins in the ancient primordial seas. As we as fluid systems immerse ourselves in water, we are able to release and recreate our form responsively as we connect through resonance to each other, to our ancient roots, to our planet and beyond and to creative potential.
