Professional soloist Val Levine will perform "Arctic Memory", a visually beautiful piece and environmentally conscious creation about Global Warming by dance choreographer Jody Sperling. This version of "Arctic Memory" is adapted from material Sperling developed during a 43-day polar science mission to the Arctic. The costume is a long cape, hand-painted with designs suggestive of Arctic pack ice melting and the sound scape is taken from the actual sounds of the Arctic ice pack moving as it melts. The work also draws inspiration from modern-dance pioneer Loïe Fuller (1862-1928).
