About the piece:

The ocean is represented by a woman and the moon by a man. They are moving to the sound of ocean waves which are in fact, a recording of the breath of the woman representing the ocean. The piece does not define the relationship between the man and the woman as the viewer may find a myriad of possibilities throughout the performance. Each are powerful and both are willing to push and pull. To be strong and vulnerable. There is a discovery of relationship to self, relationship to other, and relationship to nature. The relationship is not defined because the viewer creates their own story of what relationship they see. This is parallel to life: we cannot be told how to treat nature, we must discover and decide for ourselves to create our own relationship with nature. There is a give and take, an exploration of closeness and awayness and discoveries of support available. There is loss and return, joy and sadness. There is an inherent dynamic between strength and vulnerability as the two move into and away from each other as the Ocean and the Moon. 

About The Resource:

The Resource is a collaborative live music and dance company started by dancer and choreographer, Nathalie Wutkee. The inspiration for starting the company was a need to create combined with a desire to build a live music and movement experience that performers and audience members could share. The Resource creates their own sound and movement for all of their works and premiered with their evening length performance of EL-E-MEN-TAL in October 2017 at The Hillcrest Center for the Arts in Thousand Oaks, California. The Resource hopes that viewers feel a sense of unifying excitement and an encouragement to spark their own creation.
