Unconventional Art - Unconventional Spaces
ERIN BEDNARZ + ZOEY CANE BELYEA - WAS IT THE WIND?
WAS IT THE WIND? is about asking questions and listening. Relying heavily on dance and recorded sound, the piece will explore the space between what we think we know, what we think we want to hear, and true curiosity. Performing outside and heavily influenced by our relationship to nature, the piece will use sound installed in unlikely places and performances happening in the round with one another to encourage audience members to consider someone else’s experience as different from their own, but carrying equal weight and helping us collectively remember that we are better together because we come from deeply differing experiences.
