"We have water; it's just, we can't drink it, we can't touch it, we can't bathe in it." - Western Pennsylvania resident.
Melding live music, modern dance, physical theater, video and visual art, the NYC-based collective Strike Anywhere teams up with Bucknell's Department of Theatre and Dance, the Residential Colleges, and the Environmental Center to present "Same River." Using first person accounts as source material, "Same River" is a multi-media improvisation on Pennsylvania's rush to extract natural gas through the process known as fracking.
Over the course of the fall semester, Bucknell students conducted dozens of interviews with residents whose lives have been directly impacted by fracking. Strike Anywhere will weave the collected stories into the existing show when the professional ensemble and student group unite to revise and perform Same River together. A town-hall style discussion will follow each performance.
Sponsored by the Place Studies Initiative of the Environmental Center, the Residential Colleges, and the Department of Theatre and Dance.
