Watershed 2014 - is a series of performances that lead viewers to water thru the physical properties and crucial dividing ideas and lines flowing within the city of San Francisco that compromise the watershed. Watershed is composed of:
Creek Walks (Lead to Water): 1 City Block Length of Rope carried along and over both the existing and hidden creek paths of San Francisco from Spring to Bay following the path of least resistance. To make what is invisible visible, highlight what we cover up, and to walk over the path of the past existing flows of water. The Watershed Crew wearing orange Life vests will lead the walk and guide participants through the parks into the city and out to the mouth of the creeks at the Bay. Stops along each walk include a variety of locations including: Parks, Farms, Flea Markets, Bakery, Bars, Tech Company, underpasses, bridges, waste treatment plants. Food and Drink will be collected along the path and eaten on the water. All participants should wear shoes for a long walk and clothes that can get wet.
