In Development - Overflow
Overflow is Artichoke Dance Company’s current work-in-progress for the stage and continues our ecological series that use the human body as reflective tool, modeling device, and interpreter of the natural world to explore our relationship with and impact on nature. It reconfigures some principles from the traveling site-adaptive work Water Dances for the stage setting, and devises other new sections entirely. Community members join forces in the set creation, saving and gathering discardables and recyclables for one week leading up to the performance. These are incorporated into the set, a Ghost Net(work) created by artist/architect Manuel Mansylla using a reclaimed industrial fishing net into which the objects are imbedded. Each Ghost Net(work) is unique and reflects the community from which it came. Premieres spring 2015. Available for tour beginning Summer 2015.
DUMBO Arts Festival Performance
Water Dances was presented at the DUMBO Arts Festival, this fall. This action based performance addresses the constant yet volatile resource of water as a fundamental element, environmental issue, symbol of life and wonderland. The layered and percussive sounds of Grace Drums accompany dynamic movements as the dancers interact with the natural and structural environment leading audience members on a journey through the park.
This event was made possible with public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, the Decentralization Program of the New York State Council on the Arts, administered in Kings Count by Brooklyn Arts Council (BAC) and the Puffin Foundation.
