Free Educational Performance and Demonstration: ‘Communi-tree: Dances About Nature’
November 16 @ 9:45 am - 10:45 am
The New York Society for Ethical Culture and Jody Sperling/Time Lapse Dance present:
Communi-tree is an educational dance program offering a creative experience of nature for children grades 4-12. The Time Lapse Dance ensemble, directed by choreographer Jody Sperling, is renowned for creating visually-stunning and accessible works exploring ecological themes. The program features highlights from Arbor, a dance cultivating kinship between trees and people, and Plastic Harvest, a romp about plastic pollution that provokes conversations about what—and who—society throws away. Sperling offers enlightening commentary between pieces and, with composer Matthew Burtner, a participatory movement/music-making experience. The hour-long program concludes with a Q&A for the children.
