Can someone identify this feathered dance troupe?

Postby LowerHater » Tue Sep 06, 2011 1:56 pm

On Sunday morning at 7am while passing the Temple, I came across three dancers performing a gentle dance; costumed almost head to toe in elaborate feathered garb, including fully articulated wings. It was the highlight of my BM experience and I've been wanting to know who these dancers are so I can thank them for such a moving and meaningful experience.

I've looked through the art guide and nothing similar was listed. Can anyone help?

I've attached a found image that I believe it a photo of one of the dancers from a different performance.

I believe that the DPW found them and is holding them hostage for 10 days of MOOPing, post-event.

Too many people in feathers this year, seems the survival guide didn't reach everyone.

Despite the inevitable pile of feathers at the trash fence, and probably another pile somewhere downwind, it looks great.

While that is full of feathers, it is very beautiful.

Indeed, they are beautiful. I hope all the love they received for their dance was bottled and given to the DPW folks who are stooped over collecting their sheddings even now.

Just check in on Flickr over the next few weeks. I came across them too...and the 75 photographers and three art cars surrounding them catching that rare burning man uncontrived temple moment.
