Sisters Grumbling film installation in SEEP/TELL

  • Congress Square Park Portland, ME

SEEP/TELL is an immersive open-air installation of dance, music and film works that explore the ebb and flow of memory, forgetting, and story. Presented by Hinge/Works and Friends of Congress Square, it will be staged in Portland's Congress Square Park on May 1, at sunset.

The Sisters Grumbling's contribution to SEEP/TELL is “Diving Down,” an immersive film installation that plunges underwater to tell multiple recollections of one childhood story about getting lost in the depths of a pond.

In “The Art of Forgetting,” a dance collaboration between Yes Manifesto and Hio Ridge Dance, Delaney McDonough, Cookie Harrist, Sofia Engelman, and Kristen Stake research memory by re-creating movement events in real time, negotiating the inevitability of forgetfulness, and exploring how forgetfulness can liberate us.

 “Memory in Fragments” is a twelve-tone, multi-phonic duet for oboe and cello, composed by Denis Nye and performed by Ben Meiklejohn and Devon Collela, that explores a landscape of our fragmented memories and our search to find a narrative of the self.
