March 25-27 | 8:00 PM (EST) | Milstein Hall of Ocean Life, The American Museum of Natural History, New York City, NY

Tony-nominated choreographer Karole Armitage will premiere a site-specific dance production about the perfect storm of environmental problems that the world faces and its cultural context. MacArthur Fellow and famed Stanford University biologist Paul Ehrlich wrote an original text for the production and will perform as narrator. The meditative essay will run simultaneously with the dance. The dance does not illustrate the text, but will unfold as a parallel journey beginning in calm, turning perilous as the world goes out of whack. The production will also include an impressive corps of artists —Armitage Gone! Dance will be joined by a group of young ballerinas and guest dancers from the NYC dance community with lighting by Clifton Taylor and music by John Luther Adams, Philip Glass, Michael Gordon, Henryk Gorecki and Arvo Pärt.
