Desert Bloom

Description:

“Whether it is an extreme, brought on by random chance, or if it was a reflection of humanities impact on climate, many can agree: It was an event; a phenomena; a site to be seen. Will we see it again in our lifetime? Or is this the new climate?”

Movement I: Drought

We have been without water for so long, struggling in the extreme and relentless heat. The landscape is barren and without water, nothing will grow. We beg, we pray, and we dance. We hope all our efforts will bring rain, water, and life.

Movement II: Rain

Water begins to trickle down, and builds by adding voices. Water is flowing and is starting to fill our rivers and lakes. Visual representation through sparkling blue flags.

Movement III: Calm

The air moves across the water creating ripples. The rain and water has given us life, and the plant-life and wildlife are thriving. The music and colors will be in lush greens, and yellows. We ask for more water, but we didn’t consider this…

Movement IV: Storm (Percussion Feature)

Darkness, prevailing winds, and the heavy storm hits and relentlessly saturates the earth. Riverbeds overflow, and flood. The roar of the rushing water at full speed. The colors of blues and grays take over the field…streamers, runners, flags, giant blue fabric for flooding riverbeds.

Movement V: Super Bloom

Out of extremes, some of the most unexpected joys. A seed trapped in the barren and scorched earth. It is finally sewn. The deluge has unearthed it; soaked it, and brought it into sunshine.
