Passage of Wind and Water Arts Collaborative Choral Poem Video

September 25, 2014
by Sara Oliver, Arts Rapid City

The Passage of Wind and Water Arts Collaborative released a short video clip of the choral poem from their June 2014 performance, Echoing Passages. The poem, A Passage of Wind and Water: The Badlands was co-written and arranged by Christine Stewart-Nuñez with contributions from community members*; read by Graham Thatcher, Emily Weber, and Michael Lytle; and filmed by Randal Iverson. 

The collaborative is a group of artists who create performance works inspired by The Sculpture Project. Dance, film, poetry, and music come together to communicate our collective stories surrounding the Black Hills and Badlands—the same natural and cultural histories that inspire Masayuki Nagase’s Passage of Wind and Water. 

Rather than write a “solo” poem from her own perspective, Christine held poetry workshops in Rapid City and reached out to local high school students. Read more On the Blog about the Arts Collaborative's choral poem and find additional links.

Christine Stewart shared a first draft of Part One of Passage of Wind and Water: A Choral Poem.

Christine writes that this draft is, "Inspired by the work of Mrs. Garrett's sixth-graders (Southwest Middle School) as well as several of the adult participants who have sent me lines, poems, and bits of prose. I have drafted the "wind" section of the choral poem. Several parts seem to be shaping up: stars, water, wind, stone, prairie. I'm eager to collect more submissions, so please send yours as soon as possible."

A choral poem is a poem designed to be read aloud by two or more people in a group setting. This first draft is crafted for three readers. To read the poem,
