Riverrun Revisited is a site-specific dance performance that brings to life scientific concepts and concerns about human intervention of the waterways in Indianapolis. Choreographed by Butler University Dance Professor Cynthia Pratt and performed by dancers from the Butler Ballet, this performance will take the audience on a journey of the water and expands upon Riverrun, the original live performance from the fall of 2015.
This performance is part of StreamLines, an interactive, place-based project that merges the sciences and the arts to advance the community’s understanding and appreciation of Indianapolis waterways.
StreamLines is made possible by a grant from the National Science Foundation and administed by the Center for Urban Ecology at Butler University. Visit StreamLines.org for more information.
This performance is part of the 2016 White River Festival.
