Statement
-
Nature simultaneously presents itself to us as chaotic and predictable. Our experience of life is often the same. Many people find comfort and solace in their experience of nature for the precise reason that it is predictable and yet not easily quantifiable.

A river will always flow from higher to lower elevation, but its path will not be immediately decipherable as having a predictable pattern. When we see things with a broader perspective, however, the fractal patterns of nature become evident.

Our performance draws inspiration from nature - musical tones, colors, and shapes that are present in nature. We have taken this inspiration and borrowed the communal associations from those natural elements and re-contextualized them into a kind of communal, sacred space.
