OVERBOARD BY ANDY YODERMOBILE ART GALLERY: APRIL 22-JUNE 27 AT SANDLOT SOUTHEAST
The show was inspired by “The Great Shoe Spill of 1990” – an incident where 5 shipping containers containing 80,000 Nike sneakers were lost at sea. As the shoes washed ashore on the northwest coast of the US, oceanographer Curtis Ebbesmeyer was able to create data leading to an important study of the ocean’s currents.
Combining this incident with the subculture of sneakerhead collectors brings attention to the impact of consumer culture on the planet’s environment. Each shoe is a version of the Nike’s iconic Jordan 5 sneaker, a shoe that was introduced in 1990, the same year as the spill.
Stef Williams is truly an avid reader and have been all her life. Along with that comes a vivid imagination and a passion for writing. That passion was finally brought to reality in her first novel Joy Happened. As a dreamer, she is a true Pisces Woman - mysterious, spiritual, imaginative, idealistic, and a fool for romance; all which she brings to life in my writing.
It’s funny how things seem to fall into place whether or not it is a place that we want to be. Just for a moment, we should let our minds run free and reject any and all emotions evading our space; take in the simple things in life we take for granted such as the birds chirping on a sweet summer day. We should allow the sights and sounds to bring a different perspective to mind, a stress free perspective without any additives; just the simple things of life that lose appreciation along the way.

This event is part of our Mars Arts DC: Virtual—Dance in DC. Throughout these six short films, we celebrate the dynamic creativity of the local dance scene alongside the entrepreneurial spirit of local businesses. Curated and co-directed by dancer/choreographer C. Lorenzo Evans III—who also serves as Washington Performing Arts’s Chief Operating Officer and Director of Finance—each Dance in DC film pairs a dance artist with a signature DC business. Award-winning Chilean-born local filmmaker and music-video director, Francisco Campos-Lopez, filmed and co-directed the pairings on location. Each production features a site-specific work, along with conversations between dancers and business owners who speak about their community in these critical times.
#MarsArtsDC is a partnership of Mars, Incorporated and Washington Performing Arts, with support from Jacqueline Badger Mars.
