This site-responsive performance, featuring Esther Baker-Tarpaga, Barber, Raquel Monroe, and Courtney Jones will take place at Cherry Street Pier next to Lenape Sippu— one of the Lenape names of the Delaware River, a colonial naming. This hour-long performance will explore the themes of water, reciprocity, and time. The live action event integrates dance, live music, durational performance actions, and temporary installations in the large pier space and outside next to the river. Audience members are encouraged to move through and around the space and engage with the performers.

This production is part of TRADE SCHOOL: PHL+Detroit, a festival and exchange that celebrates the work of Philadelphia and Detroit performing artists, June 16-25, 2022.
