Amanda Clark and Dana Wasielewski of MorrisonDance rehearse on the specialized “vertical stage” made for their upcoming performance at Ingenuity Cleveland.

Leaping Off the Wall: an artistic collaboration between Ingenuity and MorrisonDance, this is dance in three dimensions that takes a leap. “Belay-rinas” will ascend and descend from a specially-built vertical dance wall amid the work of projection artist Kevin Jackson. This project is presented with special thanks to Salina Bartunek-Andrews (climbing champion-competitive athlete-broadway dancer-American Gladiator), Lee Zickel (formerly of Cleveland Rock Gym), and a grant from Ohio Arts Council’s Arts Next program.

  1. In all my days in Cleveland and all the artistic venues I attend, I have never seen or experienced anything so remarkable as your performance at this years Ingenuity Festival!!! I was simply stunned by the creativeness of the over all concept, from the music to the lighting to the graphics and of course the concept and execution. Thomas Mullready and several of our friends just stood mesmerized throughout the 4 (?) acts and just wished that there were more. Bravo Sarah…BRAVO!
