    On 9 August, at 13:01 GMT, you are invited to perform a miniature ballet "Moving Rocks".

    
The ballet has to be performed every year on Marta Becket's birthday at the time of sunrise in Death Valley Junction, USA.

    For sound visit https://vimeo.com/161108829
    For choreography see above, however interpretation is welcome.

    The ballet is inspired by 'sailing stones' - geological phenomenon observed in Death Valley, where rocks move across the desert floor without human or animal intervention. The ballet is in honour of ballerina, choreographer, painter and actress Marta Becket, who established and performed at the Amargosa Opera House, Death Valley Junction (population < 20) for over 40 years. She was discovered in 1970 performing without an audience and went on to perform for visitors from around the world.
