A perpetually falling parachute. A meditation on light as a way to connect with our friends who are no longer in the bodies we once knew. A short burst of sweetness, 7 minutes inspired by our (the performers and my) relationship with drawing in, sharing and stepping into light, and our interpretation of prostrations and heaven. A full-length work born from this exercise will premiere in the Summer of 2018.
