The Water Project

The Water Project is a Dance, Music and Visual Arts collaboration between French Canadian composer, Linda Bouchard, ODC choreographer, KT Nelson and visual artist, Kim Turos. The artists were interested in exploring people’s relationship to water, which has a history of catastrophe, mystery and daily necessity. The Water Project explores the contrast between seemingly significant human minutiae and the massive, uncontainable scale of the natural world.

This project culminated in a site specific collaboration at ODC Dance Commons in San Francisco on October 1, 2006. Visual artist Kim Turos designed five installations with Bouchard’s musical score broadcast over the 23,000 square foot site, and ODC’s 11 dancers filling rooms, hallways and the roof top for this hour long performance. In March of 2007 ODC will present the proscenium version of the Water Project as part of ODC’s Dance Downtown Spring Season at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts.
