THINGS THAT ARE WORTH DOING,
ARE WORTH DOING EVEN WHEN NOBODY IS WATCHING.
ANNUAL MONUMENT TO MARTA BECKET, 2016
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.
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. And it 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.
