A New Path to the Waterfall
Offsite at Lord Strathcona Elementary School
In the fifth and final project of A New Path to the Waterfall, artist Justine A. Chambers and MaryAnn Persoon’s grade 6/7 class have collaborated to create and lead silent walks throughout the city, responding to the notion of “choreography as a way of seeing the world” (Klein, Valk, Gormly). Inspired by Vancouver based composers and sound artists Hildegard Westerkamp and R. Murray Schaeffer, Chambers and the students have created a final walk reflecting on the ways that bodies are choreographed by the city as a means to question power, everyday dances, performances, patterns and dynamics.
Please join Justine A. Chambers and Ms. Persoon’s Grade 6/7 Class for the intersectors, a choreographed walk through the Strathcona neighbourhood. The walk will start promptly at 5.45pm from the classroom, leading visitors outside of school grounds and into the local area.
Thank you to Alana Gerecke for her contributions to the project.
