The multimedia performance includes the collaboration of video-artist and filmmaker Laia Cabrera with LiquidBody Company/Caryn Heilman, choreographer and former soloist with Paul Taylor Dance Company, and guest appearances by visionary Continuum Movement founder Emilie Conrad and noted author, storyteller and Chair of the World Orisha Congress Committee on Women's Issues, Luisah Teish; Nana Simopoulos, world music composer and musician; Cafe Da Silva, Brazilian percussionist; Dawn Avery, Native American cellist and vocalist; Vaso Dimitriou, Greek guitarist; Isabelle Duverger, visual artist and installation-maker.

LiquidBody creates stunning multimedia dance, video and music events, involving the audience in the exploration of motion and sound. "Resonant Streams An Ancient Call" is a site-specific audience-interactive multimedia dance piece featuring a cast of ten dancers, three live musicians, two multimedia artists creating virtual costumes and set. Created for the the St. John the Divine Cathedral's The Value of Water series that includes a visual art exhibit on display every day until 5p, Resonant Streams hopes to provide an experience of ourselves as water, of our interconnectedness to all water everywhere and of our origins in the ancient primordial seas. When we immerse ourselves in water, we are able to release and recreate our form responsively as we connect through resonance to each other. to our ancient roots, to our planet and beyond, and to creative potential.
