*Experience stories of migration and nature through movement & sound

Stories of human relocation, several generations back or more recent, merge with comments from scientists, naturalists about flight, migration and climate.  Told through movement, sound and media, Aflight draws a picture of connections to earth and to each other.
People -- like animals -- move to react to a push or pull in their natural habitats. As we confront global issues, JFD invites audiences to experience the real, personal journeys of the people and ecosystems in our midst -- in audio and movement.
