The Eagle has landed.

POSTED IN as a maker, Projects 27.07.2014

In 1969, my grandmother gathered the family, pressed record on her reel to reel, and exclaimed in wonder as the Apollo 11 mission landed on the moon. In 2013, I gathered my dance family, pressed record on her recording, and began to create the dance TheĀ EagleĀ has Landed. It is many layers of time exploration in a dance of kinship and discovery. While we are here, present, we listen to all the memories and together map new terrains out of the lore of old frontiers.

A shared performance between Janet Aisawa, Cecilia Fontanesi, Kristin Hatleberg, Elise Knudson, Rebeca Medina, and Ophra Wolf
