Jody Sperling/Time Lapse Dance presents four FREE studio performances May 16-19 featuring two new works and a revival of Ice Cycle. The program highlights Sperling’s ongoing collaborations with composer Matthew Burtner and cellist Scott Johnson.

For the program, Burtner comes to NYC to perform live (May 16-18 only) for the first iteration of Wind Rose, a new work-in-progress for the company that visualizes changing local and global winds patterns. With Ice Cycle, which was inspired by Sperling’s experience dancing on polar sea ice, Burtner and Sperling convey the fragility and dynamism of the Arctic icescape.

The program also includes Sound Study, a developing collaboration between Sperling and Johnson begun during a residency with Human Impacts Institute. The playful duet investigates the atmospheric vibrations of the performance space.

Soundings features dancers Alex Bittner, Morgan Bontz, Jenny Campbell, Carly Cerasuolo, Jody Sperling, and Nyemah Stuart.

The performance at the Williamsburg Library is co-presented by Human Impacts Institute and Spaceworks.

This program is supported, in part, with public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.
