Political dance film, shot in unique Soviet Era architectural structure in Solovki Island Russia. The unique building was the hangar for a dirigible (airship) that delivered supplies to the GULAG. Solovki Island and the GULAG are known to us through the writings of Alexander Solzhenitsyn. This building temporarily housed the Art Angar Center for Contemporary Arts that sponsored our dance residency on the island.
