Curated by Spark & Echo Arts, Reflections on Water will feature premieres of commissioned works from dancer Emily SoRelle Adams, dancer/choreographer Elizabeth Dishman/Coriolis, along with poet and featured Spark and Echo Artist, Emily Ruth Hazel. (Check out Emily’s recent poem: Word of Mouth.)
The program will also join the distinctive voices and styles of other New York City artists, including MiXed Company (Bill Humphrey-saxophone, Jessica Rechner-vocals), acoustic singer/songwriter Phoebe Lyng, singer/songwriter Meaghan Burke (cello, vocals), and poet/multidisciplinary artist Meghan Bechtel.

Be refreshed by waves of music and by the flow of words-in-motion with this soul-stirring exploration
of the many shapes of water and what it represents in our geographic and internal landscapes.

Reflections on Water will be performed at 11AM and at 2PM in Nolan Park on Governor’s Island. Both showings are free admission and open to the public. Visit our facebook event page for more!
