Fountain (:) Live

Alexandrina Hemsley / Yewande 103


Dance Performance 

Fountain (:) Live is the premiere of Alexandrina Hemsley’s screen dance Fountain. Fountain is a screendance evoking water as both metaphor and inevitable occurrence, to explore tidal cycles of repair, loss, joy and intimacy. Fountain situates itself amidst the colliding range and scale of experiences within Black subjectivities that water evokes: from the play of running through fountains in the summer, to the significance of oceanic passages and the impact of colonial carving up of water.
