Fare Well – Rising Tide

Original Performance on April 18, 2009

2009 – a dance work that is part of the Fare Well project, a series of several dances, examines the rising of our oceans and the pollution of the seas and waterways with plastic water bottles and other debris and chemicals. Dancers wear dresses created from hand-held plastic water bottles.  These dresses create diverse sounds when moving the body.  The costumes adorn the body – a fitting metaphor for human indulgences. Recorded sounds of whales provide a haunting environment for Rising Tide.

GW Dancers: Eva Dornstreich, Alex Lang, Brooke Miller, Lydia Mokdessi, Christine Moloney, Kristin Pepin, GW Dancers performing on DanceWorks, Spring 2009.
