ABI AND MOLLY FEATURED IN DANCE INSTALLATION AT DE YOUNG MUSEUM
Inspiration, an evening of multidisciplinary performance curated and directed by Tiit Helimets, principal dancer at San Francisco Ballet, featured text by Abi and performance by Molly. The evening included an installation of film, dance, poetry, narration, live painting and talks.
A film screening of Blue, Black, and White is projected onto the walls. Dancers covered in paint move across giant canvases, imprinting their shapes as musicians, a singer and actor accompany them with song and text and a painter captures all of it on his own canvas. The installation examines Helimets' love of his country through the colors of the Estonian flag. The colors blue, black and white, representative respectively of sky, earth and hope, are set to music, providing a window into the recent past of Estonia, its struggle for independence and progression to peace.
