SHE WOULD WALK THE SKY
Open up a clock, you will find cogs. Open up the world (the way we work, the things we do, the tides rise and fall) and you will find them. A bird like circus troupe who perch on wires, fall from heights, ruffle feathers , and walk on hands - who challenge gravity so we don't have to.
Theirs are the tricks that keep our time, all within the wondrous, cavernous belly on the Roundhouse. But when a bird takes flight, a trick is missed, a cog goes missing, then things they start to crumble. Our clocks begin to stop.
A show of disbelief, of gasps and subtle grandeur. She Would Walk The Sky is an epic poem told in grand circus, raw sound and sparse word.
