In August 1977, NASA sent into outer space the phonographic recording The Golden Record. The recording contained sounds and images selected to portray the diversity of life and culture on Earth with hopes of someday communicating with other intelligent life. Sanspointe dance artists Lynn Andrews and Rhea Speights choreographed a dance response to this cultural capsule—a dance which ranges from satirical to earnest—and makes physical humanity's attempt to project ourselves beyond our own time span.
