Interglacial is a new multidisciplinary dance work through which choreographer Laura Peterson explores the urgent topic of climate change, inspired by minimalist geometric art and Land Art of the 1960s and ’70s. A dance and visual art installation project, Interglacial is about deep time and the dynamics of nature that is designed to create a space for reflection on human impacts on the Arctic region of the earth and to encourage climate activism. In the piece, four dancers manipulate a set made entirely of paper transforming an icy landscape into enormous sculptures and become a tsunami that overtakes the stage. Laura Peterson is a NYC-based dance artist creating works that challenge the limits of physicality and reframe performance spaces.
