Wealth From The Salt Seas explores the embodiment of assertion and agency through visceral somatic experience. Vocalist and composer Gelsey Bell joins Anna Sperber in performance to collaboratively mine the physical space of the theater for its poetic and emotional vibrations. The female body emerges as a resonant, echoing force within a visual landscape conceived in collaboration with scenographer Sara C. Walsh and lighting designer Elliott Cennetoglu.
Choreography, direction, and performance: Anna Sperber. Music and performance: Gelsey Bell. Lighting design: Elliott Cennetoglu. Scenography: Sara C. Walsh. Styling: Lydia Okrent.
Additional commissioning support provided by the Jerome Foundation.
