The Lake and the Island

THE LAKE AND THE ISLAND
Performance / Live Event (projected photographic imagery, poetic script, books, natural objects). 2017

The Lake and the Island is part of a body of work made on Rabbit Island in Lake Superior, during a solitary month-long environmental arts residency in 2016. This live performance uses a format of projected imagery, spoken word and literary readings to take an audience on a poetic journey to the interior facets and littoral features of a remote island in America. Through a series of embodied fieldworks and immersive surveys of the forested rocky outcrop, this work explores microcosms, remoteness and the scales of wilderness.

LUCE CHOULES The Lake and the Island

Excerpt from narrated script:

Higher up – rough boulders piled | And littered | Make shadows | Deep around the island – broken
Across great slabs – softened | By lapping water | Where small plants cling – alone | And grouped together
Drying | In the summer air | Skeletons of spring
