Production Details / Press Releases
The Sun gazes upon the Earth, creating and destroying life, the engine on which our ecosystems depend. Under my Gaze is a ritual for our times—created by choreographer Renae Shadler together with Aerocene — a sculpture inflated by air, carried by wind and lifted only by the Sun. Bodies and voices pulse with the gravitational pull and combustive power of this solar giant, tracing the Sun’s movements through limb and skin, through reflection and darkness.
The Aerocene sculpture gives a body to the unseen forces that surround us: connecting Earth-bound dancers to aerial and cosmic worlds in a transforming landscape of shadowy creatures and molten forms.
