through the sheets of clouds

Through the Sheets of Clouds is a new evening of dance directed by Lydia Hance, performed by Frame Dance, the Little Framers, and the MultiGen Framers based on Mary Oliver’s poem The Journey. With music by Sam L. Richards, Leah Reid, D. Edward Davis, Mark Hirsch, and Panayiotis Kokoras. Musical performances by Baylor Percussion Group.


The world feels so big. So heavy. Branches at your head, rocks at your feet. Voices in your ear. You gawkily balance the world’s call for repair and the weight of your responsibility to others, unsure of your own sound.

“But little by little,
as you left their voices behind,
the stars began to burn
through the sheets of clouds,
and there was a new voice
which you slowly
recognized as your own”
– Mary Oliver, from The Journey
