About Bodies of water
Friends of Waterfront Seattle presents BODIES OF WATER, a 5 hour hybrid performance spectacle by Italian-American choreographer Alice Gosti, in collaboration with composer Benjamin Marx, produced by Velocity Dance Center.
BODIES OF WATER is architected as a celebration of the city of Seattle, while reminding us of the complex relationship the city has with its waters. This timely new work is inspired by its location – the Seattle Waterfront – and compelled by ideas of water as a natural element, spiritual/cyclical entity, transitional space, and port. Bodies of water is a political performance touching on the ideas of immigration and refugee crisis, Native American fishing rights in the northwest, and water ecology.
