…terrestrial life forms.

Pretty much everybody who heard Niki: “Could you just come over to my house and sing to me all day?”

Audience member: “Whatever she is, she is an exceptional performer.”
Audience member: “What an exquisite dancer!”
Audience member: “I loved the performer who was ferociously swinging.”

Get ahead of the curve: signs point to the BLOBTARD by Elena Delgado being the must-have wardrobe item for 2012.
Happiest when off the ground, we are always conscious of gravity.
We gravitate toward collaboration because there is lots of stuff we want to make, say and share, and we like to give lots of people the chance to make, say and share stuff. We are more than the sum of our parts.

We gravitate toward multi-disciplinarity because versatility is evolutionarily adaptive. Each of the mediums we use has certain things it does best and certain faculties it stimulates: verbal, visual, kinetic. We want to be able to explore all those facets through the most appropriate means.
We gravitate toward collage form because our world is dense with materials both found and newly made that take on enriched meanings by being placed in proximate relationships, stimulating logics both linear and associative, rational and intuitive. This is what our mindspace looks like.
We want to stretch conventional aesthetics.
We want to expand the creative possibilities of aerial work.
We strive to apply athleticism, technique and form to the expression of meaningful content.
We want to be in active communication.
We want to fire on all mental and physical cylinders at once.
We think this has to do with being alive.
