> DESCRIPTION

Stijn Schiffeleers and Michael Swaine invite you to join them on a journey into the wilderness as they perform a multi-media non-spectacle inspired by natural elements, the hand-built, and the work of Richard Louis "Dick" Proenneke, a naturalist who, for 30 years, lived alone in the high mountains of Alaska. We are all Together, Alone in the Wilderness features performances on the musical sewing machine (a foot-powered finger piano), Beat Blocks (a wooden, tangible interface for a rhythm sequencer), a tree stump record player/recorder, a canoe, buckets, and a two person saw. The one-time-only presentation also includes the screening of an "Alone in the Wilderness" remix—a re-edit of the original account of the day-to-day explorations and activities Proenneke carried out in the Alaskan wilderness, alone with the constant chain of nature's events that kept him company.
