BETWEEN UNDERGROUND AND SKYWORLD is a multimedia dance theater work that conjures visions for a more sustainable future. The show brings forth intertribal perspectives on sustainability and renewable energy from the next generation of Indigenous superheroes. Fusing tradition with technology, the heroes explore themes of repetition and renewal, finding healing and remembering ancestral knowledge. Guiding their creative process in cultural viewpoints on sustainability and renewable practices, Dancing Earth Creations also employs sustainable arts practices through set and costume design which utilizes reclaimed/repurposed/recycled materials and lighting design which prioritizes LED technology.
Development of this work subsidized by the MAP Fund, The Wallace Alexander Gerbode Foundation and receiving touring subsidy through 2021 through the New England Foundation for the Arts National Theatre Project.
