Yellow Barn – Preview Performance: Paddle to the Sea

This preview performance of our new project, Paddle to the Sea, happens at the culmination of our two week creative residency at Yellow Barn.

Paddle to the Sea tells the story of a Native Canadian boy who carves a wooden figure called Paddle-to-the-Sea and sets him on a journey through all five Great Lakes, the St. Lawrence River, and finally to the Atlantic Ocean. The story underscores the geographic, economic, and cultural connections formed by our shared waterways, and asks us to consider the human impact on the waters that help us transport our goods, provide our electrical power, bathe ourselves, cook our food, and quench our thirst.

Providing a live “soundtrack”, Third Coast Percussion will perform works inspired by impressions of water and the natural world by Philip Glass, John Luther Adams, and Jacob Druckman, and compose music of its own to create a performance that flows seamlessly throughout the course of the film.
