Carie Schneider here.....Because I'm very bad at getting information to Nanette so she can do interviews for things like this - whoops! - I have a couple corrections about the Youth Company piece - it's actually based on my visit to the headwaters of the Gila River last summer, where I watched the river begin to rise downstream while a monsoon storm raged over the watershed. I talked to the youth about this view of a river, how it can be peaceful one moment, and raging the next; how it can soothe your sore feet, but wear away at stone. The kids themselves (ages 10-13) then wrote about experiences they had when water was both peaceful and thrilling, calming and destructive. All the movement was created by the kids themselves, and I just put it into a structure and order. But if you want to just go by my dad's review of the show (he came to the open dress rehearsal tonight): "Those kids are energetic!"
