This performance explores the border-crossing migratory monarch butterfly in it's transformation and metamorphosis. Each stage of the life cycle is present within the performance, patterns and dance structures take us on a journey with the caterpillar that spins her cocoon with ribbon while dancing. When the point-shoed caterpillar is enclosed within her cocoon, she changes, metamorphosing into a winged creature. She escapes the cocoon, her movements have become organic and natural mimicking the body language of the monarch in her dance.
