Walking Iris (work-in-progress)


Walking Iris is an absurdist puppet/dance work co-created with Patti Bradshaw inspired by botanical wonders such as the walking iris (Neomarica gracilis), winged immortals including the Greek goddess Iris (personification of the rainbow and sister of the harpies) and the Boreads (or wind brothers), and the mystery of the recreated “Ladies in Blue” fresco found in the Minoan palace of Knossos on the island of Crete. The piece aims to present a meditation on the world of the unseen, the seemingly fleeting nature of time, and the natural cycles of plant life, seasons, and cultures that, like everything, come into being, abide for a time, dissolve, and begin again.
