@ The Lensic Theater
Santa Fe, New Mexico
Rain Anya returned to the place that started it all- Santa Fe, New Mexico. Where the Paper Doll Militia began as a little seedling, Rain appropriately came to play a dandelion seed dancing in the wind in the 2011 Circus Luminous. This delightful circus production happens every year on Thanksgiving weekend, and has become a holiday staple for the Santa Fe locals for the past 9 years. Selling out EVERY show this year, Luminous was a smashing success, a collaboration between the downtown historic Lensic Theatre and Wise Fool New Mexico. Rain Anya (Co-Artistic Director of The Paper Doll Militia) and Amy Christian (Artistic Director of Wise Fool, NM) created a side by side aerial silk act entitled “Seeds to Silk.” The two fabric performers intertwined their skills into one captivating performance, weaving elements of floor movement, silhouette, stillness,stunning solo sequences and dynamic synchronized choreography.
