1992 – In America, Native America, and many other cultures, the Eagle is admired and held in great reverence. When working on the red earth sites in the Southwestern United States it is always a glorious moment when the Eagle soars above with its great power, strength, and beauty.
For this work, we viewed the Eagle as a messenger to and from the Gods. If you were in communication with the Eagle you could receive a message from the Gods or, perhaps, send a message.
Messenger Eagle is included as part of the evening-length program, Dance for the Earth created in honor of the United Nation’s Earth Summit (Eco’92) in Rio de Janeiro. Messenger Eagle was performed in Rio de Janeiro on a beach stage sponsored by the City of Rio.
