Flyaway Productions’ Niagara Falling Performance

Rapt Productions had the opportunity to document this stunning performance by Flyaway Productions. During the performance, artists suspended 100 feet above the street on the Renoir Hotel wall told the story of America (a street, two towns, and a nation) falling and rising. The backdrop was a beautiful film by Hi-Jin and David Hodge. Watch a few excerpts from the performance:

“This inspiring coming-together of artists and mediums does more than wow with its awing visual effects; it educates, inspires, and informs the route we must take if we want to solve urban decline…It speaks to something much deeper than throwing money at the lack of money, because what is really missing is not lack of money but lack of care and foresight from the leaders we entrusted.” – In Dance
