I am the River is the last phase of the Dreambody Trilogy and a project in its own right.
I am the River interdisciplinary piece – dreambody trilogy 2016
I am the River as a stage interdisciplinary performance has been carrying to a final form the 3 years journey on the relation between the river and its environment and the many stories we encountered.
It has been performed in Wageningen, Utrecht and Amsterdam in 2016 with this cast:
dancers – Petra Vossenberg, Veronika Semelkova, Femke Jansen, Joao Gouveia- cello: Eloi Jorda Saun , electric guitar: Orestis Karghotis , video: Raul Anderson, artistic direction: Marisa Grande
I am the River research & residency 2017
In the context of the Artistic Residency at UCU I had the opportunity to open up the work and reinvest in the process and in the investigation. My interest and focus have been on how to carry the themes and quality of the river environment through bodies? and how stories in movement, music and text can intertwine to create a radial dramaturgy?
It has been performed at the University College Utrecht in 2017 with this cast:
dancers – Petra Vossenberg, Veronika Semelkova, Femke Jansen, Sandy Sarantaki, Joao Gouveia- cello: Eloi Jorda Saun, video: Raul Anderson, artistic direction: Marisa Grande
