At Such a Dizzy Height (Peace Window)
Late in his career, Marc Chagall produced a number of paintings in glass with colorful, dream-like images symbolizing peace, love, tolerance and faith. This choral work accompanies choreographer, Robin Lane's translation of Chagall's "Peace Windows" into motion. It is the the finale of At Such a Dizzy Height, a visually stunning work of aerial dance, circus arts, video, and live music draws inspiration from the paintings of Chagall.
In the words of choreographer/artistic director Robin Lane:
"Chagall did not make distinctions between what can or cannot fly, between humanity and the natural world, between art and spirit. Chagall refused to limit possibilities. His work is both grounded in history and delightfully spontaneous. Chagall says his paintings are not symbolic of anything, they are reality. They are meant to be experienced like poetry. So that is what we tried to do. At Such A Dizzy Height takes place at the intersection of love and art."
