A Time to Fall
July 17, 2013,
WIAprojects


Artifacts
(Pam Patterson & Leena Raudvee)

A Time to Fall, a collective performance, has been developed by Amy Sharrocks in London, UK with a variety of people for whom falling has different resonances… able-bodied people, school children, over 60s ….etc. As Sharrocks writes, “This is a group performance which looks at how people move together. The piece deals with the importance of care and the kindness of strangers. It is about the shock that replays the event and the need to tell the story of each fall as a way of dissipating its power. We look at ways of walking - and of veering off - and how experience, pain and ageing processes are accommodated into our bodies. The result is a measured, strange kind of dance with a gentleness that reflects an act of kindness and careful watching, capturing a moment of care.”

In gentle solidarity with A Time to Fall (London), WIAprojects (Toronto) invites you to come and fall together with us at Trinity Bellwoods Park (near Queen St West & Strachan) on July 17th at 6 pm. The 6 pm time is to coincide with the London event. We will gather to "rehearse" at 5.30 pm. If anyone has instruments, percussion, bells, or chimes you are welcome to join us and support this action. Children are welcome! The event will be videotaped, documented, shown online and shared with all of you and the UK group.
