This Make Music Chicago performance of (Ir)reversible River Stories will explore will explore ways by which humans have lived with and attempted to change the Chicago River and Lake Michigan—including the 19th C. plan to reverse the Chicago River, the design and construction of moveable bridges along the river, early 20th C. plans to elevate Wabash Avenue, and current attempts to control the movement of invasive species such as the Asian carp. The score will involve a graphic score, poetry, and found text from documents regarding the plan to reverse the Chicago River.
