February 26 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
The Aquarium: A Marine Micro Ballet
The Aquarium is a creation of Susan McDonald in which she combines original music with footage of wildlife, creating sublime live performances in which she is the “orchestra” and the animals are the “dancers.” The subjects are live animals who seem to dance to her music, while in reality, Susan has composed her music to flow naturally with the movements of the animals. While a bit of creative editing is involved, the animals have given their approval by acting beautifully, humorously and even sometimes outrageously.
The Aquarium features the strange and funny occupants of a saltwater reef aquarium, with characters such as the cranky little Pom Pom Crab, the fabulously creative Decorator Crab and the bright red and very active Serpent Star.
