Walking on Other Worlds, premiered at Playhouse Square in Cleveland,
OH as a part of Ingenuity Cleveland, 2007.
The project was an innovative video production, produced collaboratively
by MorrisonDance and NASA using dance choreography and green screen
technology to showcase NASA Glenn's "floating treadmill."
Treadmill simulators like the enhanced Zero Gravity Locomotion Simulator
(eZLS) can mimic different gravitational environments, and are used
by NASA's Human Research Program and the Cleveland Clinic in studies
to understand how astronauts may exercise more effectively in space.
In collaboration with NASA Glenn's Imaging Technology Center, choreographer
Sarah Morrison transforms the eZLS into an opportunity to "Walk
on Other Worlds" with original music composed by Jim Bonney.
Below is a 3 part series of the of collaboration. The videos will play
