blink. stories of earth and home. (2018)
Hurricanes. Earthquakes. Tidal waves. These things can change a life in an instant. With global temperatures on the rise, we are facing melting icecaps, raging forest fires and storms more devastating than we’ve ever seen before. The earth, however, is more than natural disasters. The earth is endless forests, blue skies and breathtaking views. It’s the lake you escape to on hot weekends in summer, and a backyard full of fresh, fluffy snow.
The earth is our home.
Home. There are many ways to define this one word, but no matter who you are or what language you speak, we do share one thing in common: the earth is the chosen container for our home. And our home is in danger. Everything could change before we blink.
In an original creation brought to life through acrobatic storytelling, spoken word and music, Momentum Aerial & Acrobatic Troupe invites you to come back to your roots. Join us for seven stories of home, loss and hope for the future of the earth. Welcome home.
