Our complete entry responded to the IIDA prompt, “SENSEation” and centered on a circus theme (hence Pearl as a centerpiece). A circus master and jester accompanied Pearl onstage, leading the elephant along the runway to the song “The Winner Is” by Mychael Danna and DeVotchKa from the Little Miss Sunshine soundtrack. We called our entry “Loxodonta” as a nod to Pearl’s presence (loxodonta is the greek word for elephant) and our description of our entry played into the excitement and mystery of a circus act.
Deep in the circus tent, the ring master and the jester begin the evening’s rituals, drawing us in to a world both absurd and extraordinary. The circus tent allows the audience to forget their worries and enter a world of SENSEational and breathtaking wonder.
