"A Watershed Moment" Set to the music of British composer Karl Jenkins, "A Watershed Moment" is based upon the concept of the watershed. The immense power and force of water inspired both movement and spatial design that is complex and harmonious, a reference to the importance of water as a driving energy throughout our city, the complex systems and infrastructure that exist to power the urban landscape combined with the sheer force of a traveling body of water. The watershed represents the critical moment of division, new pathways and vital shifts in direction – in an instant, everything can change. Premiered at the the Ailey Studios, New York, May 2010.
