Now Touring: Bringing the Arctic Home
Global warming meets dance in this “chillingly apt” program inspired by Jody Sperling’s experience dancing on Arctic sea ice. Sperling participated in a polar science mission to the Arctic where she was the first choreographer-in-residence aboard a US Coast Guard icebreaker. You can see her swirling on ice in the award-winning film Ice Floe. With this program, she transports the polar icescape to the stage.
