Program Notes

Desert Caravan portrays a large group of people moving across the desert in a seemingly endless caravan line. We see the caravan silhouetted against the dunes, people and animals moving steadily onward, motivated by the constant beat of drums. As they pass us by and move off into the distance, their images and sounds fade away into the landscape and into our memory.
