"Wind Rose" continues choreographer Jody Sperling's collaboration with environmental composer Matthew Burtner. A wind rose is a meteorological tool that graphically represents wind speed and direction at a particular location. This new work sonifies/kineticizes local and global winds patterns which are changing dramatically with climate change. The dancers push the boundaries of Sperling’s Fuller-influenced apparatus using it to whip and slap the air while add their own vocalizations to create a signature wind "sculpture" in the space.
