Soaking WET - Johanna Meyer/Catherine McRae - "Maps"
Their inspiration is the simplicity and detail of "The River," by visual artist and poet Jen Bervin. "The River" is a visual art piece, an inch scale map of the mississippi River that meanders over 200 feet, hand sewn in silver sequins. The dance takes its cues from Bervin's viewpoints: ceiling and wall and the idea of orienting the audience to many different perspectives; submerged, looking up to the sun's reflection at the surface. The layered work collages original choreographer, solo material by Bay Area choreographer Rhea Speights, live atmospheric violin loops and feedback, and a collection of objects that the artists found amongst their possessions: sequined clothes, balloons, noise making devices, and a collection of flashlights.
