Soundwave ((6)): Water Storied at SOMArts
Theatrical performances featuring Edward Schocker & Dohee Lee, Kasia Krasnoplska & Qimmin Liu, and MEI Collectiv

The stories about water are fabled, mythological and legendary. It is our way of making sense of this mysterious substance and how we use it to express who we are and our cultures. Artists Edward Schocker and Dohee Lee present 'Suijin,' a collaborative piece combining sound, movement, storytelling and unique musical instruments, that explore personal connections to (and fears of) water: water that provided for their livelihood but also took away loved ones and property.  Suijin (water people) is a Shinto word used to refer supernatural beings found in lakes, ponds, springs, wells, and irrigation waterways.

Artist/dancer Kasia Krasnoplska & dancer Qimmin Liu create a new sonic dance choreography interpreting water movement, and the meaning of water. The "Water" dance is designed as a structural improvisation where two dancers travel, drop, and fall to portray wateran interaction between these two people changing forms. The MEI Collectiv invites audiences to participate in 'Water Ritual,' a sound, dance and visual performance/installation that speaks to water's sacred qualities and highlights its great aesthetic aura, revealing its playful and poetic potential. Throughout this "ritual," artists and audience members will celebrate together the commons around a central installation: a savory mix of live/recorded, tastings and choreographed performance.
