Choreographer Cindy Salgado, having been commissioned to choreograph a new piece for Barton Movement, chose Daniel's original text as the foundation of her new piece. The original work premiered at Axis Connect in Los Angeles, CA in 2016.
Eager to reach a broader audience with this piece, Cindy Salgado and Charissa Barton set out to capture it on camera, the result of which is this film.
Infinite gratitude goes out to everyone involved in the creation of this film.
