Superbloom is a multi-media performance work about radical beauty, wildness and wildflowers, and the fragility and the resilience of the natural world. Through dance, spectacular costuming and animation of painted landscapes, the work aims for splendor as a mirror of the sublime beauty of the natural world.

Superbloom continues The Seldoms’ interest in our environment, with a body of performance work that conceives a relationship to the earth and to all life on earth based in stewardship and sustainability, pluralism and justice.
Our creative process for Superbloom included two week-long development residencies in stunning locations: our 2020 Trillium Arts residency in the Blue Ridge Mountains outside of Asheville, NC and our 2021 residency at Door Kinetic Arts Festival in Bailey’s Harbor, WI.
