Droplet Dance: The celebration and awareness of water through dance.
DROPLET DANCE integrates dance, theater and acrobatics. It weaves story and song into colorful threads that connect heart to heart and bring about awareness of water in our world. The flow, with the natural movement of spirals and gravity, are imbued with the spirit of water itself through use of the Cyr Wheel.
Performance and choreography are by Molly Gawler. Live accompaniment is by songwriter and fiddle player Lissa Schneckenburger of Brattleboro, Vermont.
Molly grew up on a small farm in Maine. She has danced from a young age and studied and danced with the Bossov Ballet and with the Pilobolus Dance Theater in New York City. She continued her studies with the Cyr Wheel and Rope at the New England Center for Circus Arts. She is also a very active fiddle player and singer in the "Gawler Family Band," and “The Gawler Sisters.”
Lissa Schneckenburger grew up in Maine and is now living in Vermont. She began playing fiddle at a young age. In 2001 she graduated from the New England Conservatory of Music with a degree in Contemporary Improvisation. She has been performing and teaching music around the world ever since.
