Crimson, a River Runs

PROGRAM NOTES

06 September 2012: The residents of the industrial center Chongqing, China take notice as a section of the Yangtze River exhibits a sudden shift in hue.  Many reports immediately attempt to explain this abrupt pigmentation, citing possibilities of silt abundance, microorganisms, or dye pollution, none of which could be confirmed as to why the “golden waterway” suddenly turned crimson.  Let the performers of this composition act as a tableau.
