What is FLOW??
FLOW is an awakening to what was, what is, and what could be, marking the Rio Chiquito’s path (now Water Street), and unfolding the history of what was once a major water source for the city’s flora, fauna, and agriculture.
FLOW is a procession of giant puppets, street theatre, music, poetry, dance and ceremony running from the source Spring at the northwest corner of Paseo de Peralta and Alameda, following the Rio Chiquito (now Water Street) to its confluence with the Santa Fe River near the Guadalupe Church.
FLOW offers free public arts workshops May 27 and June 3 at Wise Fool NM, (1131 B Siler Road) to engage, educate and inspire all community members about Santa Fe’s water and water history. At these workshops, we’ll share histories of the Rio Chiquito and the Santa Fe River as inspiration for puppets, banners, movement and poetry about water and the Rio Chiquito. Resulting artworks will inhabit the procession, coming to life as we community members wear, dance, speak and sing our relationship to the waters.
