The Art of Seafaring – In Process Showing

The Art Of Seafaring
Choreographed by Madeleine Gregor
Co Directed by Lauren Hlubny and Madeleine Gregor
A Production of Coriolis Dance
The Art of Seafaring will be a 45 minute evening length work detailing the triumphs and tribulations of 5 individuals who have been lost at sea for hundreds of years. The work will take the audience on a journey of isolation, jubilation, tenacity, delirium, and dashed hopes. The crew works together as they console, and devise new plans for escape, at the center of the work is the installation. A hanging centerpiece featuring knotted ropes, discarded picture frames, and sail fabric is a visual representation of the trials they have overcome.
The creation and premise of this work, although unique, deeply resonates with the lived experiences we’ve had through the COVID-19 pandemic. As a community we have felt isolation, dashed hopes, the feeling of time flying by while standing still. I hope to tap into these lived experiences with the cast to build this work authentically in a way that will connect uniquely with each audience member.
