array is a performance made up of three primary ingredients: a long array of spinning pinwheels, fireworks, and the desert sky. In the American West, the symbol of the pinwheel is evocative of the windmills of the old west and the wind turbines that dominate growing portions of open space in the new west. As the sun dips below the horizon and the sky gets fancy, the light show will begin in the distance moving pinwheel by pinwheel towards the audience. In their brief moment of glory, the blazing pinwheels show the persistence with which we try to harness, mimic and out-shine the natural world, and the (sometimes admirable) futility of our attempts.
dark:30 is Lisa Ward, Marisa Frantz, and Jim Kanter.
