Of Water and Ice

Performed by Sarah France and Valerie Levine

Arctic Memory, by award-winning dancer/choreographer Jody Sperling, is an environmentally conscious creation, Music by DJ Spooky. In the polar regions, a constant interplay takes place between H2O in its liquid and solid forms. Set to a DJ Spooky score, generated itself by the geometry of ice crystals and the math of climate change data, the dance explores what happens when this fragile balance of water and ice spins out of control. Choreography commissioned by Ice Theatre of New York® with the generous support of the New York State Council on the Arts.

Performer Liz Schmidt

When Atoms Embrace, an acclaimed solo choreographed and costumed by original John Curry Theatre of Skating member, Lorna Brown. Lorna is an artist with a deep interest and knowledge in science.
The piece is set to Music by Arvo Pärt’s "Spiegel im Spiegel" and was inspired by a poem Lorna wrote herself:
She comes to us in blue and lavender light which shines on us all to give mankind energy and love and to help and heal our planet. Lay me in a field of wild flowers, let the scent perfume the hours. When The Atoms embrace and time changes pace, I find my magical powers.
