Dive in! Help Sonia Plumb Dance Company create "Water Wars," a bold dance about water - who has it, who doesn't. Premiering in June.
Water. It's fluid beauty makes it the perfect subject for dance and movement. You can watch it cascade, ripple and splash across the landscape. Water is also the source of life — a source whose availability is being threatened by overuse, overpopulation, climate change and pollution. "Water Wars," the full-length dance production, challenges audiences to look at how we need and use water. And, what happens when there is too much...or too little.
As the dancers and I dove into the subject matter, we discovered there was a lot to say. From our cultural obsession with bottled water to news reports of communities being displaced by rising seas to droughts in Texas. All were fodder for the dance. We are rehearsing tirelessly to create a piece that is beautiful, thought provoking and inspiring. And, original music (by award winning composer Cory Gabel) supports the dancers on their watery journey.
But now we need your help to finish creating "Water Wars" and bring it from the studio to the stage. The music, costumes, set and our talented dancers all need to be compensated...without your support, this vision cannot become a reality.
You can be a part of this adventure.
"Water Wars" premieres June 15 and 16, 2012 at 7:30 pm at Saint Joseph College, West Hartford, Connecticut.
