Singing to the life force in water and blood, Cecilia improvises new poems, and Jane Rigler responds improvising in the flute. The performances took place at Battery City Park, and at the Museum of Jewish Heritage, a Living Memorial to the Holocaust. Both the park and the Museum are near the site where the Twin Towers bombarded on Sept 11th 2001 used to be. The poems are dedicated to their memory.
