Cracks in Creeks: Final Performance

Sep 8, 2019 | Events, News

September 22 @ 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm

Witness the final performance of Cracks in Creeks: Live Streaming, at the Collingwood Neighbourhood House Annex on September 22nd! Join us in celebrating World Rivers Day by watching this piece dedicated to the salmon and the ecosystems in Still Creek.

The emerging artists that form this youth troupe performed a site-specific version of Cracks in Creeks: Live Streaming in the Renfrew Ravine on August 11th, as part of the Vines Art Festival. The performers embraced the natural sounds and beauty of the ravine in their surroundings, while the audience moved through the creekside space in Renfrew Park with the performers.

The final performance at the Collingwood Neighbourhood House Annex (3690 Vanness Ave.) is adapted for indoor viewing. Entrance to the final performance is based on a sliding scale from $5 to $20. Light refreshments will be provided. Collingwood Neighbourhood House Annex is wheelchair accessible and has wide doorways and automatic doors.

Cracks in Creeks: Live Streaming is a site-specific movement performance, sonic installation, and visual eco-art presentation on the banks of Still Creek, created with Still Moon Arts mentors and youth performers. The inspiration is from the Still Creek Watershed and ecosystem where salmon spawn in urban Still Creek next to roads, train tracks, and big box stores. Inspiration is also drawn from eco-art created by Still Moon Arts, teachings about Indigenous plants and medicines, and mentorship by professional dancers. Over several weeks in the summer of 2019, the youth performers co-created a piece based on their learnings, incorporating elements of dance, song, movement, poetry, visual art, and natural soundscapes to tell their story.
