The Orton family has been larger than life for me as for more than fifteen years, I have had the honor of their friendship, company and creativity. Ortandon is the collaborative creativity of three sisters Katie, Sophie and Anna and their many faceted creative explorations. This one is a performance piece by Katie and Sophie with a pair of tights and it is genius in its humor, dance and possible developments.
