“The vortex of superstorms and torchlight parades and poisoned speech. The unimaginable and the all-too-real, and the moments of illumination amidst it all. Skies Calling Skies Falling is our response to this vertiginous new reality – how to create a sense of hope while continuing to resist. How to reassert the profoundly human.” – Margaret Jenkins
Skies Calling Skies Falling uses shock – the physical, emotional and intellectual embodiment of this state – as its central metaphor. A proponent of a fully realized collaborative art, Skies Calling Skies Falling is a combination of a rich, nuanced and diverse physically charged dance vocabulary, narrative shards, an original musical score of both found and composed elements, vibrant costumes and drone video of the Company, creating an explosive, questioning, kinetic and hopeful landscape.
