Fleming’s new interdisciplinary celebration of femininity combines dance and mesmerizing visual theater in a series of “vision poems.” Fleming juxtaposes her singular movement with geometric moving sculptures and brilliant lighting by longtime collaborator Christopher Odo. Featuring live music by renowned Irish composer and violinist Colm Mac Con Iomaire (founding member of the Frames) and uilleann piper James Mahon, with pianist Bruce Brubaker performing music of Philip Glass. Exploring the “immortal waters” of the mystical feminine, Wildflowers asks: “Is immortality an elusive paradigm or present in the here and now?”
