Called to the Sky

video performance
2009

Called to the Sky explores narratives of hope, loss, patriotism and skepticism in the many periods and places where war makes citizenship a confounding privilege. Overlapping themes jump off the pages of the scores into the music, video projections, and the dancers’ skillful and athletic improvisation.

Performed by Clyde Forth Visual Theatre at Merce Cunningham Studio September 2009.
