Tradewinds Signs Rally is an open-ended choreographic, sculpture and light experiment along Route 66. Drawing from road signs and placards, color guards, flag corps, parades and military pageantry, we give rise to deliberations about power, control and empowerment. The performance contrasts free-form movement with rigid, grid-based choreography in order to see what kinds of visual phenomenon arise from varying interactions of bodies, props and lights.
