"The Stream / The Boat / The Shore / The Bridge is a live public artwork along and across the Yarra River.
See a familiar place from four new perspectives and add your thoughts and your hands to the action.
Sometimes divided, sometimes connected, you’ll have questions to answer and decisions to make”
Just four participants at a time experienced a series of interconnected site-specific performances at sites surrounding the Southbank Pedestrian Bridge in Melbourne, Australia. The creative development and premiere season was supported by the 2012 Next Wave Festival.

With one group of students, the teacher provided strong “scaffolding” — instructional support — and feedback. With the teacher’s help, these pupils were able to find the answers to their set of problems. Meanwhile, a second group was directed to solve the same problems by collaborating with one another, absent any prompts from their instructor. These students weren’t able to complete the problems correctly. But in the course of trying to do so, they generated a lot of ideas about the nature of the problems and about what potential solutions would look like. And when the two groups were tested on what they’d learned, the second group “significantly outperformed” the first.
