Sue Schroeder and Christian Meyer as longtime collaborators have created body of water, a film offering for Global Water Dances 2023. Filmed in 50℉ water temperature in Stößensee, Berlin, the lake provided the location to explore the myriad ways that water can connect with and inform our human nature.
In Berlin, the main water quality problems are eutrophication, the associated growth of algae, and damage to the oxygen balance caused by eight major sewage plants. Schroeder, along with Meyer, wishes to raise awareness for this issue in Berlin through this 3rd creation for Global Water Dances. See Context below for more information.
Global Water Dances connects and supports a global community of choreographers and dancers to inspire action and international collaboration for water issues through the universal language of dance. Global Water Dances is a bold visionary worldwide artistic initiative focused on the critical need for safe drinking water. The organization uses one of most effective way to do that, through the dance, which is the language understandable by everyone despite their nationality. Global Water Dances uses the international languages of dance and film to promote awareness and a behavioral shift toward solutions for water preservation and conservation through community engagement.
