The Seldoms bring back their dance theater work about the divisive national debate over climate change, within the larger setting of a symposium around environmental performance and issue-based art-making.
A pre-performance talk with Artistic Director Carrie Hanson and The Seldoms’ dramaturg and NU faculty member, historian Michael J. Kramer, precedes the performance on Friday, April 25 at 6:45pm. A post-performance conversation follows the performance on Saturday, April 26.
