2016-03-11 Confluence with Text DanceCircus

CONFLUENCE explores Milwaukee’s rivers as metaphor for the journey within and between communities as the focal point of a new dance-theatre performance. Betty Salamun and Janie Boston start the collaboration, like the three rivers, from different points of awareness. Betty’s 40 years of exploring the impact of environmental problems and solutions – dams and culverts, non-point pollution and reclamation, industrial, residential and recreational uses – creating movement concepts to express natural beauty and ecological reality. Working with text, movement, song and narrative, Janie’s work employs the arts as a catalyst for change. In The Dance Cafe performances use the music of Black spirituality, contemporary spiritual texts and modern dance to explore the power within ones self.
