We ring the bells because they must be rung. Robin Poitras’s KinesTHESES residency continues with three scheduled public bell ringings at the water’s edge over two weekends. waters/edge invites participants to engage in group walks that result in making ensemble sound / bell songs, near various sites where the water’s edge meets the land. All are welcome to come and listen/observe, but for those wishing to participate as bell ringers, Robin will offer several prelude rehearsal sessions. Through a series of somatic based workshops with Robin Poitras, guest artists, and somatic practitioners, participants/public will be introduced to a walking, sitting, and bell ringing journey near the water’s edge. Those attending one or more of the prelude sessions are expected to commit to participating in at least one of the scheduled walks. If you cannot attend a prelude session but still wish to participate in the ringing, email here to make arrangements with the artist.
