Tundra is dance performance on July 28th and 29th at the Truss House in RiNo Denver. The purpose of this work is to reframe the misconception that these are cold, frozen, lifeless places disconnected from human existence are actually teeming with life, in constant motion and never-ending transition–from moving rocks and shifting glaciers to curious pikas burrowing deep in the snow. Our goal is to have the audience walk away with a deeper connection to the tundra, a newfound appreciation of how climate change in the mountains will affect us down here in the front range, and a better understanding of why we should protect this ecosystem. The performance is family friendly and intended to build an emotional connection to this particular environment and its related issues, while our environmental partner will help address scientific questions and channel the audience’s emotions into actions.
