The residency, in the shopfront of the Judith Wright Centre of Contemporary Arts, ended this December. It allowed to develop, refine and present an immersive installation performance which took the audience through an interactive exploration of water issues, the use of Waterwheel, physical engagement and real-time collaboration with online crew from around the world and Anna Yen performing in Brisbane (28. Nov-10. Dec 2011).
The 4 public showings, 7-10 December 2011, were full-house. Sadly, Doug Leonard, who worked on the dramaturgy and wrote the 'watervoice' poem (edited version in the video poem below), died suddenly during the season. We lived a moving moment when Cherry, online performer, gave a eulogy & toasted with all crew and audience to celebrate his life!
