Once Upon a Time - 'Icarus' (no narration)

A simplified version of the classic Greek myth of Icarus is told using interpretive dance. A father and son are in prison in a tower when a feather falls through the window, giving the father an idea to escape. He looks at the feather and at his son before hatching a plan. They empty their pillows of feathers and using candle wax, make beautiful wings. Running through the castle to find a way out, the father launches his son up towards the sky and watches him fly away over the castle. But he flies towards the sun, the candle wax melts and the boy fall back to earth.
