Lord Strathcona Elementary School
Choreographed walk starts at 5.45pm
In the fifth and final project of 'A New Path to the Waterfall', artist Justine A. Chambers and MaryAnn Persoon’s grade 6/7 class at Lord Strathcona Elementary School have collaborated to create and lead silent walks throughout the city, responding to the notion of “choreography as a way of seeing the world” (Klein, Valk, Gormly). Inspired by Vancouver based composers and sound artists Hildegard Westerkamp and R. Murray Schaeffer, Chambers and the students have created a final walk reflecting on the ways that bodies are choreographed by the city as a means to question power, everyday dances, performances, patterns and dynamics.
Please join Justine A. Chambers and Ms. Persoon’s Grade 6/7 Class for a choreographed walk through the Strathcona neighbourhood. The walk will start promptly at 5.45pm from the classroom, leading visitors outside of school grounds and into the local area.
This event is part of 'A New Path to the Waterfall', a CAG satellite gallery space at Lord Strathcona Elementary School. Initiated by US artist Harrell Fletcher at CAG Burrard Marina Field House Studio, the project places artists in Maryann Persoon’s grade 6/7 classroom at Lord Strathcona Elementary School to re-shape the ways in which we consider contemporary art, gallery spaces and public schools.
