The Flying Project

The Flying Project explores why humans yearn to fly and whether true flight (using no mechanics) is possible. Why do humans yearn to fly? Do humans want to escape Earth? Have we been encouraged that up is better- from images of angels, heaven, power? Is it because they can travel without mechanics on land and in water but not yet in the air?

Choreography and Performance, Helena Webb and Emelie Wangstedt
