Crane: On Earth, in Sky is a spectacle of environmental theater, music, and dance told through immersive rituals and contemporary ceremony that reflects our connectedness with all of creation. The audience journeys alongside whooping cranes as they use waterways for maps during their migration cycle. Indoor kite flying, amazing puppetry, video projections, and aerial arts help tell the story. In this day of climate control and its dangerous effects on animals and migration, this story is especially important. Crane: On Earth, in Sky shows potential dangers to a crane’s life and celebrates the richness of indigenous cultures as well as Native American traditions that invoke a spiritual essence in honor of these majestic birds.
