Our Little Sunbeam (2004)

In 33 Fainting Spells’ final ensemble work, Hanson and Hanson crafted a collision between two primary sources–Anton Chekhov’s play, Ivanov, and the United States Space Program. Our Little Sunbeam was co-commissioned by Dance Theater Workshop (New York Live Arts), Walker Art Center and On the Boards.
