Fountain (:) Live

what kind of bridge?
i can’t ignore the water
This durational work cycles through the FOUNTAIN  film and a dance score performed live.

Fountain (:) Live sees dance artists cycle through plural, interconnected, expansive, non-linear states; their dancing body amongst the symbolism and psycho-geography of water as inevitably linked to Black histories, embodiments, repair and mental health. Digital watery projections call in the significance of oceanic passages and the impacts of colonial carving up of water and selves within Black existences. 

This work is durational and performed on one hour loops. Audiences can enter and leave the space at any time.

Duration can vary per venue (1-3hrs)
