Global warming meets dance in this “chillingly apt” program inspired by choreographer Jody Sperling’s experience dancing on Arctic sea ice. In 2014, Sperling participated in a polar science mission where she was the first choreographer-in-residence aboard a US Coast Guard icebreaker. (You can see her dancing on ice in the award-winning short film "Ice Floe".)
With Bringing the Arctic Home, she transports the polar icescape to the stage. The stunning production incorporates original music, innovative costuming, lighting and projections. Along with performances, the company offers climate literacy outreach. Sperling’s tailors residencies to each community so as to draw attention local impacts, as well as the global consequences, of climate change.
