It is SHE Who I See

It is SHE Who I See is Craig Harris’ immersive multimedia performance that celebrates the original woman who is in all of us. It is She Who I See emanates from two sources: a digital illustration created by artist Candy Kuehn that provides the show title, and a poem by renowned poet Rita Dove – “The Hill has Something to Say”. This digital illustration reflects how Candy perceives the original woman whose DNA carries forward into all of us through time. The poem expresses the depth and meaning of all that has unfolded through time on the hill, and reinforces the thread that holds all time together in us.

Presented at the Ritz Theatre in Minneapolis, MN in 2012, the music for It is SHE Who I See includes selections from several of Craig Harris’ works created since 1983, including “The Hill has Something to Say;” “On the Hill,” “On the Hill 2,” and “On the Hill 3,” which are improvisations by the ensemble Shape deconstructing the poem “The Hill has Something to Say”;” “Still,” “Now Time All Time,” “Gentle Rain,” “Lilacs in Spring in Terezin,” and “After the Storm,” from his Piano-Cello Suite; “Beauty Awakens,” Beauty is…,” and “Deep Sleep” from Harris’ Sleeping Beauty Ballet Suite; “Threshold,” Harris’ 1983 chamber ensemble work recorded by the ensemble Zeitgeist; and “SHE is,” a work created for this production.
