The collaborative work of Lisa Nelson and Cathy Weis dates back to the 1973 environmental multi-media epic The Green Dream performed in a turn-of-the-century mansion in North Bennington, Vermont. Workshopped at the Residency Project of Movement Research, Inc. in NYC in 1990, An Abondanza in the Air has been presented in-progress in diverse spaces including the Room Dances Festival in Israel, and the Center for New Dance Development in Holland.
