LiquidBody Dance performance  Resonant Streams: An Ancient Call


Previewed at Plunkett Auditorium in Adams, MA on October 16th, 2011.

Topia Arts Center and the Cathedral of Saint John the Divine in New York City co-produced this audience-interactive multimedia LiquidBody Dance Performance with live original music by Nana Simopoulos for the Cathedral’s series on “The Value of Water”.

Resonant Streams: An Ancient Call  premiered on November 11th ~ 11/11/11 ~ and continued on the 12th at 8p at the Cathedral of Saint John the Divine in New York City.  It 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 that includes a visual art exhibit open for viewing at the Cathedral until 5p every day, Resonant Streams hopes to provide 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.

SYMPHONY OF CARPENTERS

June 12, 2010 7:00 PM

On June 12, 2010 both professional and lay carpenters built the stage extension inside the Topia Arts Center’s new performance space. The show was a percussive symphony of construction sounds with the carpenters shaking bags of nails, hammering, drilling and performing a variety of choreographed sonic events to a live audience. During the show Lara Gonzalez & Yael Shacham of Marafanyi  performed on a drumset assembled by Bill Chapman with kids from found objects.
