Video by Steve Trimble with Brolly Arts

In 2004, I collaborated with Amy McDonald's Brolly Arts to create a celebration of the Great Salt Lake—"Contours"—performed at the Rose Wagner Theater in Salt Lake City. The enclosed file is one of my contributions from that evening—a photo sequence to accompany the Ahn Trio playing "Milonga del Angel." The dancers were organized by Amy McDonald and Brolly Arts. I love the combination of visuals, music, and dance—all interpreting the spirit of the lake.
