BEYOND THE CLOUDS
Beyond the Clouds is a site dance performance that takes place on Blue Lapis Light’s 3- acre property and features twelve performers, including two aerialists on standing rigs and ten dancers on 5X4X4 stands.
The work is a poignant reflection on our individual and collective energies during these challenging times. Days often become passageways into despair and isolation, but this is also a powerful time for growth and change, a time to recognize our humanity to one another as well as our responsibility to our beautiful earth. All is visible, as when a dam breaks and the waters rush through, flowing and moving, unleashing with great momentum and freedom. Our choice is what we do with it.
Beyond the Clouds is inspired by the many who have dedicated themselves to peace and to uplifting others, those who have the courage to walk with truth, even when the risks are great. Dance connects us and provides ways to reveal complexities of life’s emotions and our reactions to world events.
It is through the arts that the world accesses its collective memory of what has been lost, buried and forgotten. Art offers an emotional vision of a world transformed and is a gift of solace and beauty in the midst of harsh and brutal conditions. Beyond the Clouds reflects this inspiration and provides a visual and aural experience that reveals the commonality in our humanity.
