See April 7 events for more information on the solo performance of No Time to Fly. Deborah Hay is one of the most radical and innovative choreographers of contemporary dance. Her choreography, from exquisitely meditative solos to dances for large groups of untrained and trained dancers, explores the nature of experience, perception, and attention in dance, and has received numerous awards. No Time to Fly is choreographed to provide clear and comprehensive instances of non-linear reality for the performer and the audience simultaneously and attempts to truly admit and celebrate the ephemeral nature of dance by learning to notice, and consciously embody, time passing.
