Actor and educator Shannon Ivey moved back to Columbia in early November, choosing a duplex in Forest Acres, one block from an area decimated by the October flooding.
In her solo performance piece, Natural Disasters of the Human Kind, Ivey gets personal.
“I have a waterline. It’s on my body. It’s my C Section scar,” she writes in a description of her piece, which explores change, grief, resiliency, pregnancy and gender. The performance blends monologue, found sound recordings and movement playing on the metaphor of a waterline as a physical reminder of a personal flood.
