During this Artistic Residency the performance “Over A Rainbow”was given.
36 000 pictures of everyday, life, and love accumulate and flicker over an interior monologue and movement designed for 6, 8, & 14 dancers—where the artists attempt to fly “Over A Rainbow” and in doing so portray a bold pray, so that audiences observe:
—That flying isn’t natural, but that doesn’t mean that we can’t do it.
—That falling is a part of flying
