CHANGE/MOVE/REVOLVE/FLY  |  Cynthia Gutierrez-Garner

“CHANGE/MOVE/REVOLVE/FLY” is a new solo for the camera based on the Frida Kahlo quote “Nothing is Absolute.  Everything changes, everything moves, everything revolves, everything flies and goes away.”  This speaks to me as a dancer/ choreographer because of the kinetic energy that is contained in these words.  It also speaks so piercingly in the time of COVID and BLM because of the way it points towards the hope of transformation.  Life can feel so uneasy under these conditions, but these words serve as a reminder that everything changes.  This piece is dedicated to my daughter Ella and the Class of 2020. May they change, move, revolve, fly!
