Abstract

The Dancing Spokane River is a student-produced, dance-based production touring to K-6 schools in the Inland Northwest. This interactive performance teaches audiences about natural and renewable energy resources, ecosystem dynamics, and our own interactions with the Spokane River through movement and narration. In this presentation I will take the time to share my inspiration for this project, my processes and experience in research and development, and the success of the production thus far. We will also share an excerpt from the thirty-minute, interactive show.
