River of Inclination - "I will cross the whole world wondering if you will ever come back or if you'll let me die."


Madeleine de Scudéry devised three ways in which to reach the land of affection. One of them was the natural flow down the River of Inclination. I have somehow pictured her representation as a ride down the lazy river on a warm summer afternoon... something that only happens once per lifetime, if you get lucky...


Choreographer Maira Duarte has created her own version of this path.


Performance took place at the Convention Center water sculpture, culminating down by the Allegheny river.


Performed by Taylor Knight and Anna Thompson.
