The award-winning Armitage Gone! Dance Company, led by founder and Artistic Director Karole Armitage, will premiere their piece On the Nature of Things in the Museum’s Milstein Hall of Ocean Life, March 25-27.
The dance, accompanied by narration written and performed by biologist Paul Ehrlich, was inspired by Dr. Ehrlich’s writings on climate change and created specifically for the hall, incorporating iconic exhibits like the polar bear diorama.
The result is a one-of-a-kind performance that explores the issue of climate change—and the loss of biodiversity that accompanies it—in a cultural context to illuminate the complex relationship between mankind and the natural world.
“It’s really talking about how a change of consciousness is necessary for humans to adapt to what is happening,” says Armitage. “It’s a meditative essay, scientifically and also artistically.”
