Walking on Other Worlds

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 in sequence, or you can click on one of the selections in the menu to view a particular segment.
