“……The experimental film, On the Other Side of the Lake, features a lake surrounded by a dense forest in Sweden and scenes that unfold in fast-forward or reverse. For Jenny Larsson, staging a live, site-specific performance in downtown Fort Lauderdale required imagination.
So, Larsson improvised. She incorporated a large kiddie pool with scenes from the film projected onto the building to show Larsson repeatedly falling into the forest lake from a floating dock. Dancer Galen Treuer stood inside the kiddie pool, his silhouette projected onto the wall. He too created a splash by standing and then falling face forward over and over…..”/April Simpson, Freelance Journalist, Broward Arts Journalism Alliance.
