Past Performances by Atelier5:

July 2012 at the Santa Cruz Fringe Festival

The Time of Falling and Flying
A new work by Donna Von Joo-Tornell that explores the inception of the universe as reflected in the flight patterns of pelicans. Go Van Gogh, Yael Naim, and an original composition by Erick Ocho give lift to this quirky, poignant piece. Dancers Mitchell Lang, Jamie Thompson, Jenna Monroe, Kelly Somerville, Erica Freestone, and Aaron Spencer transverse the odd connection between these two seemingly polar ideas.
