Sourcing the stream: a video and performance residency directed by Wendy Woodson. This immersive project in video, sound, and performance looks to the stream as a timely source for inspiration, solace, reflection and reaction. Each day the artists in residence will experiment with different ways to create images in different media based on streams - their motion, patterns, colors, voices and reflections. The week residency at A.P.E. will allow time to experiment in an open environment where unexpected reactions and interactions can influence the evolution of the project.

Wendy Woodson is a choreographer, director, writer and video artist. She has created 97 works for stage and video presented in the U.S., Europe, New Zealand and Australia at venues such as the John F. Kennedy Center, LaMaMa Etc. NYC, LaMaMa Melbourne, the Smithsonian, Jacob's Pillow, Emerson Majestic Theater, Washington Project for the Arts, PS 122, and the DeCordova Museum. In addition to her set pieces, she is also a veteran improvisational performer. She has received numerous fellowships and grants in choreography, playwriting and video from the National Endowment for the Arts, the Massachusetts Cultural Council, the D.C. Commission on Arts & Humanities, the Rockefeller Bellagio Center and the Fulbright Commission among others. She is Artistic Director of Present Company Inc. and is the Roger C. Holden Professor of Theater and Dance at Amherst College.

Rehearsal sessions will be M - F afternoon from 2 – 5 pm and are open to the public.

A writing workshop with Connie Congdon is scheduled for Thursday morning, 10-12:30 for interested people to create their own responses to stream.

In progress showings/performances will be on Friday and Saturday evenings at 8pm and are free and open to the public.
