WITD recommends: Wobbly's TIDAL (the first cut)

  • The Headwaters Theatre 55 Northeast Farragut Street Portland, OR, 97211 United States (map)

December 2nd at 2pm and 7:30 pm
Q&A to follow the 2pm showing


Wobbly’s new experimental film “Tidal” is an exploration of the relationship between the rhythm of mechanized breath and the rhythm of the oceans. It is a fantastical film, where breathing masks transform into diving masks, ventilator tubing morphs into costumes, and an ancient diver who calls the ocean home, draws us into his world. We fall, we dream, we dive. We transform from human to jellyfish and everything in between. This film is a continuation of the exploration of Wobbly’s dark, dream-like and sometimes absurd aesthetic. Starring Yulia Arakelyan and Erik Ferguson as the dreamers, Nathan H.G. as the Diver, and a special appearance by Grant Miller.

We are thrilled to once again be collaborating with cinematographer Ian Lucero, costume designer Jenny Ampersand and musicians Sweetmeat. Additional animation was created by Kurtis Hough. Make-up by Sumi Wu and Jenny Ampersand. Photography by Kamala Kingsley.

This film is generously supported by a Project Grant from the Regional Arts and Culture Council, Foundation for Contemporary Arts Emergency Grant and by the numerous people who have donated both time and resources to make this project happen.

We will also be screening Waking the Green Sound: a dance film for the trees.

We are currently working on confirming an ASL interpreter and Audio Description for the screenings. We will update the event page once it is confirmed.
