Art notes: World of water at Westminster; reconciliation in Rwanda
Water world at Westminster
Salt Lake Tribune
May 1, 2009
Like your art big? Say 38 by 27 feet big, to be exact? And do you like it outdoors? Choreographer Corrine Cappelletti and visual artists Jim Frazer and Suzanne Simpson have just the collaborative project for you. Tagged "unravel, REVEALED," this is a live performance spanning 24 hours and incorporating an entire water ecosystem as its theme. Much like the small-caps and all-caps nature of the title, this is a project that ebbs and flows a lot like water itself, re-creating the birth and gradual death of a natural environment and its inhabitants using sound effects, suspended cheesecloth, contoured tape and live dancers. This free performance is part of the local arts nonprofit Brolly Arts' collaboration with the Salt Lake City Department of Public Utilities for Water Week, events promoting water conservation through May 9.
