Event Details

Cracks in Creeks: Live Streaming is a site-specific movement performance, sonic installation, and visual eco-art presentation on the banks of Still Creek, created with Still Moon Arts mentors and youth performers.

The inspiration is from the Still Creek Watershed and ecosystem where salmon spawn in urban Still Creek next to roads, train tracks, and big box stores. Inspiration is also drawn from three other artworks about Still Creek and the salmon, as well as teachings about Indigenous plants and medicines.

The emerging artists that form this youth troupe performed a site-specific version of Cracks in Creeks: Live Streaming in the Renfrew Ravine on August 11th, as part of the Vines Art Festival. The performers embraced the natural sounds and beauty of the ravine in their surroundings, while the audience moved through the creekside space in Renfrew Park with the performers.

On September 22nd, you can witness the culmination of this youth mentorship project at the adapted indoor performance in the Collingwood Neighbourhood House Annex. Light refreshments will be served to go alongside this special story about our natural ecosystem.
