Set for Falling

Missouri Contemporary Ballet at the Missouri Theatre, Columbia, MO, 2009 & 2015

Falling was a stage set consisting of projected scrolling text from two projectors onto hundreds of strands of translucent fabric through which dancers performed. The scrolling text was composed of this poem I wrote for the piece:


Relinquish yourself to the
Cycles of sublime falling

Let the dance fall from your feet
Fall apart
Let it fall to the sky

Watch it fall back together

Everything falls to pieces
And then falls into place

Plans fall through
And you fall out of favor

Yet it falls back together again

Relinquish yourself to the
Cycles of sublime falling
