Ladies of the Lakes

LOTL1Stone Depot has teamed up with visual artist Marguerite Perret and dance film artist Tori Lawrence  to create a new installation at the Mulvane Art Museum in Topeka, KS.  The exhibit, Drift & Drag:  Reflections on Water, opens on January 16th and will be up until March 14th, 2015.  LOTL5The dance, with music by Natasha Taylor and Luke Anderson, premiered on February 6th as a part of the First Friday Artwalk reception.  Washburn University’s Dancing Blues led the procession into this immersive solo exploring water conservation, female water deities and the spirits of Annette Kellerman and Esther Williams.  On February 20th, Ellie Goudie-Averill will present an encore performance at 3:30 pm as a part of Washburn’s Water Symposium.

LOTL3“Goudie-Averill’s grace and power, expressive range and physical control, is on display, and although she can’t reproduce the spectacle of mountain/river backdrop from her video version, she compensates with collaboration, choreographing parts for the Dancing Bods at the outset and close of the program (and they pull it off wonderfully).” -Tom Prasch, audience member
