Premiering Thursday, July 19th, 2007 at 7:15pm
PALACE THEATRE, Playhouse Square, Cleveland, OH

“Walking on Other Worlds” is an innovative video production using dance choreography and green screen technology to showcase NASA Glenn's "floating treadmill." Treadmill simulators like the enhanced Zero Gravity Locomotion Simulator (eZLS) can mimic different gravitational environments, and are used by NASA's Human Research Program and the Cleveland Clinic in studies to understand how astronauts may exercise more effectively in space. In collaboration with NASA Glenn's Imaging Technology Center, choreographer Sarah Morrison transforms the eZLS into an opportunity to "Walk on Other Worlds" with original music composed by Jim Bonney.
