Choreographed and directed by Joanna Haigood, "Love, a state of grace" will feature six of the Bay Areas most talented aerial dancers who will interact with original props created by collaborating designers Wayne Campbell and Sean Riley. These props include an anchored 90-foot ladder and 70-foot swinging pendulum, each a unique response to the rhythms and height of Grace Cathedrals Gothic design. Composer Walter Kitundu's sound score will incorporate recorded material, the activation of live acoustic instruments within the space, the Cathedrals massive pipe organ, and voices of a small choir, all in conversation with the Cathedrals cavernous interior space and prolonged reverberation. Theologians Yohana Junker and Claudío Cavalhaes will design a series of meditations and small rituals that the audience may engage throughout the Cathedral.
