To Be Truly Awake


Drumming and chants bounce off gymnasium walls. Each student focuses on an exotic musical instrument including voice to produce an unique ethereal sound. Just outside groups of other students dance freely to the music. With the participation of all Rose Avenue junior students, resident filmmaker Bronson Allen directs a moving indoor and outdoor interdisciplinary art piece incorporating expressive dance (flock landing) and South Asian music with artists Gurpreet Chana, Kaeja d’Dance and music teacher Andrew Luck.

This is a celebratory piece to welcome the summer solstice. We see the surrounding urban landscape comprised of a unique and diverse community committed to their part in holding up the sky.
