____________________________________________________ "When you arrive in a new place, in just a few days, the 70% of your body that is water is now from that watershed.”
- Andrea Olsen, Body and Earth
River/Body is a water dance about the intense and immediate ways that our bodies and the body of the river are connected. We are water bodies living on a water planet. River/Body is about awakening the sensual, compassionate heart of that relationship.
Performances will begin promptly at 5 pm. Please arrive at least 15 minutes early.
Bring a towel or cushion for seating. Wear shoes that will allow you to safely walk down to the river.
Supported by: The Martha Boschen Porter Fund, Berkshire Taconic Foundation, Housatonic Heritage, Northwest Connecticut Arts Council, Housatonic Valley Association, Steep Rock Association and generous private donors.
