Silent Sky is a solo multimedia dance that journeys on an intimate and magical memory of a child's loss of her father during Venezuela's revolutionary movement in the 1960s. 
This was my first work integrating visual narrative into a dance performance. From here on, using moving images became a device to expand my dance performance as it explored complicated content.
