Strike Anywhere Performance Ensemble
NYC-based collective Strike Anywhere returns to NACL with SAME RIVER, a multi-media improvisation on “fracking” and its impact on a community. Each performance is unique, using material drawn from first-hand accounts in a structured improv format. The company uses music, dance, theater, video, and visual art to draw connections and give voice to multiple viewpoints.
Strike Anywhere created SAME RIVER in 2010, during a residency at NACL, by interviewing residents of Sullivan and Wayne Counties about the debate over fracking in their community. Over the last 3 years, the company has toured to many affected areas, each time connecting with the community, and customizing the show to reflect the new perspectives.
A town-hall style discussion will follow the performance. A pre-show art installation will feature artwork made by local community members and students.
“As NY considers drilling as many as 100,000 wells in the watershed for over 16 million people, Same River brings the human stories of those who are in the pathway of this industry to the fore.”
