This rope hold was designed for the Cry of the Crane Performance about the Whooping Crane as being a species "on the come-back", a survival story where only 16 birds were left in the whole world. Now there are over 300. This performance score was about my own endangered species, same height, in my back yard, colors of white, black, & red. We used the rope to give us the feel of flying and when Christine first tried it she cried. She was up against fear and judgement but her movement was so real and authentic I told her "I hope you always cry when you dance". That was the year 1990.
Now I will upload the youtube of antuan. (Somewhere, I even have Christine on the rope??)
