Surfing Underground -- April 18-20
You are invited to Surfing Underground, my new performance that blends images and stories to explore the question: What is it like to spend your career working in a hole?
Amanda said, "There's something calming about it... in a creepy this-is-like-a-grave kind of way."
Talking about repairing water pipes for the city of Calgary, Kelvin said, "We stand out in the middle of traffic, traffic on both sides and we feel comfortable. For us that’s the office, vehicles racing by."
Built with stories from dozens of City of Calgary construction workers, Surfing Underground weaves together the social landscape and culture of construction work, extreme weather, and the unpredictable nature of the public.
Suring Underground is a 45-minute performance for ages 7 to adult. Performances will take place at 18th&Union an Arts Space, located at 1406 18th Ave. Seattle, WA 98122.
April 18, 19, 20. Thursday and Friday shows at 7:30pm, Saturday's is at 5:30pm - tickets $15-25
Purchase tickets here.
This project was funded by the City of Calgary and Watershed+.
