Songlines - The Rhythm of the Ranch

Songlines - The Rhythm of the Ranch Join artists Sarah Wallace Scott and Eileen Roscina Richardson at the Rocky Mountain Land Library for a day of immersive learning about the local land in an intimate and sensory way. Inspired by Australian Aboriginal songlines, or dreaming tracks, we will explore Buffalo Peaks Ranch by foot, listening to the languages of other animals, and noticing the rhythm of the topography, and the various traits of the area. Can we become attuned to the shifting sounds and gestures of the local earth, and inform our own lives through the life of the land? Through careful observations and further research utilizing the printed resources of the Rocky Mountain Land Library, we will create stories, songs, poetry and dance that celebrate and describe the land, landmarks, animals, insects, plant life, and other natural phenomena of the area. Our day will conclude with a performance of our creations under the open sky of Buffalo Peaks Ranch.
