Karen Stokes Dance premieres the evening length dance theater project Mapping & Glaciers .

Mapping & Glaciers explores human interaction and nature through the vast, contradictory, and beautiful identities of maps. The project examines manmade and natural boundaries that challenge humans through tribalism and constructs of power, and the shifting shape of our geological environment under the influence of climate change. While the work questions the often-devastating absurdity of human choices, it also speaks to the resiliency of human nature. Mapping & Glaciers creates space for hope, for the possibility of connection and interconnection.

Choreography/film/direction by Karen Stokes, original music by Samuel Lipman, lighting design by Clint Allen, costumes by Ashley Horn Nott. Performers: Brittany Bass, Bethany Logan, Bryan Bradley Peck, Michelle Reyes, Davis Stumberg.Read more
