Our journey into the colors brought us last month to BLUE at Rivertown Revival, a fantastically fun festival celebrating creativity and ingenuity. From drum kits made of gears, pots & pans to art boats on the river, many works of artful utility are created for the revival. We anchored our ship with rebar and brought along our butterflies, set up an aerial rig, and danced our way through Blue River & Sky, and introduced the audience to our local Pipevine Swallowtail Butterfly.
We were honored to have Expandance Director Rachel Wynne as our choreographer for the event. It was a joy to work with her. Our dancers Sam, Rebekah, Tessa and Emily guided us into the vivid world of Blue with fans painted for the occasion. Emily Anglewing, costume designer for the Butterfly Ship, made her debut as an aerialist with a gorgeous performance on silks, to original music by our performing musicians. Guest aerialist Kristen Krup also graced the sky-stage with her own stunningly beautiful dance act in the air! Our musicians Bo, Chris and Brendan and narrator Stefan brought it all to life with song and poetry.
We were featured in the Press Democrat & Argus Courier, and we also took a whole bunch of our own photos. We'd love to share some of them with you here. Thank you to the volunteer crew of Rivertown Revival for hosting us!
WINGS Publication reflects on the human experience through language. It is the literary expression of our performance group "The Butterfly Ship". Here you will find articles by members of our crew and guest writers, on themes which contribute to the 'building' of the vessel with which we will sail to the sun....
