About Sky Over Milton

Sky Over Milton is the website connected to a larger performance project called MILTON created by Katie Pearl and Lisa D'Amour, known collectively as PearlDamour. We've been making experimental performance in big cities for many years, and in 2012, we decided to shake up our assumptions and discover an America outside of our "big city brains." We began visiting the 5 towns you see above-- together they stretch across the country like an earth-bound constellation. We are making a performance to bring back to the Miltons that tries to capture the complexity of this constellation. Since the performance cannot hold everything, we have created this website to provide a glimpse into these 5 towns, and to give Milton residents a chance to share their own points of view about life in their cities. Please explore! We’re glad you are here! New pictures and stories will be shared often throughout 2014 and 2015, so we hope you come back soon.

The slide show to your right is a window into our process of making the performance itself-- working with students across the country and locals in the different Miltons to bring together elements of sky video, objects, artifacts, and text inspired by our conversations.
