In response  to  Earth Seen from Above from ATLAS, the 1991 opera by Meredith Monk, the seven dancers explored their own imaginative spaces.  In the beginning, we collected our own observations of the music and used them as improvisation scores.  Virtual rehearsals offer new forms of dancing, dance making and performance.  In the process of making, the choreographer and dancers are constantly challenged by the many possibilities rather than the limitations.  This piece explores many ranges of movement as well as how the movements are captured by the camera.  As the piece unfolds, the observations become a storyline that is being told and seen from all directions where perhaps the viewers can see from their own perspective.
