ABOUT THE PROJECT

Commissioned by La Jolla Playhouse for the 2019 Without Walls Festival, Third Rail Projects’ Ikaros is an experiential collection of dreams, myth, film, poetry, dance, and performance. It is an audience-centered walking tour through a desert garden path, located on the grounds of a former naval base under the active sky of a nearby airport. Images of Icarus and Earhart, the fragrance of rosemary, and the flight patterns and roar of the engines above fold into one another to become a rite of passage that follows a cartography of flight and failure.
