Collaborative Large-group movement & musical event created by UMN Art & Dance Grads+Undergrads
~A MISSSISSIPPI RIVER ROCK OPERA~
Friday Sept 9 2016 as part of WAM-O-RAMA
Comissioned by the Weisman Art Museum
Moves across the bridge from the West Bank into the Weisman Art Museum
We look down and remember that we are walking over the river
Every day we stride across this bridge, do we feel the flow?
A mighty force! The place from which we get our water! We must invite her up! Thank her for her daily contribution to our lives!
River as a breathing body, river spirit breathes water
The river rock goddess must be un-mucked
Now that she has emerged, what does she have to say?
She takes deep gulps to sing
Froth | forth
Float | on
Run | off
The river moves | the river moves me
Moved by the river | removed by the river
