The Six Foot Platform: Sea She – Marina Celander
The Six Foot Platform: An experimental residency program presenting work by Brooklyn-based artists on a 6×6 platform at the intersection of Washington and Water Streets. Saturdays from 12-9pm. Presented by the Dumbo Improvement District in Partnership with Brooklyn Arts Council.
In SEA SHE, theatre artist Marina Celander will move and live on a six foot platform throughout the day. Sea She feels the proximity to the East River and feels drawn to her body of water flowing just beyond our postcard picture vantage point on Washington St, but she cannot leave her platform. She is the embodiment of all water; she flows and exists everywhere, yet she is trapped. Sea She is surface and depth; liberation and fear; ancient, yet always present. The music and soundscapes that accompany her moves are composed by Swedish composer Fredrik Söderberg. Magdalena Gomez, writer, spoken word artist, weaver of words and sounds, and poet laureate of Springfield MA, created the textual layers for our performance. Fiber artist Thomas Victor designed and handcrafted the Sea She costume.
