a multidisciplinary water opera

Created by Gabriel Forestieri
Music by Loren Kiyoshi Dempster
Saturday and Sunday, March 30 and 31, 2019, 8:00 p.m.
Wellness Center Pool

Gabriel Forestieri (choreographer), Loren Dempster (composer) and Adrian Jevicki (author and visual artist) combine light puppetry, projections, swimmers, divers, dancers, actors, musicians, and singers to create Breathe - A multi-disciplinary water opera.  Underwater dancing and floating choirs mix with a soundscape composed directly from the space itself, using contact microphones both out of and in the pool. A play on dimensions of air, water, and light, that blend and signal through all these possibilities of sound, space, and depth. The cast is a mix of athletes, performers, and professionals contributing to an unconventional performance with many surprises.
