Human Nature Dance Theater will perform an evening of dance, including “Migration”, a new work that explores current immigration issues through emotional personal experience, using a mix of dance, theater, spoken word and music.
Imagine a time when you pack your essentials and walk out the door never to return. What if a disaster causes you to build up reserves, cut back on expenses and hunker down. What if the storm is so severe, that the only recourse is to abandon everything and search out a new land on which to start again? Some are living that life now. First one, then another and then entire communities floating over seas, walking across borders and landing in unknown territory with no map of the future, like butterflies.
Human Nature Dance Theater creates original dance performance, as a collective of cross – disciplinary artists, emphasizing experimental, environmental, and inter – generational perspectives. For over twenty years, HNDT has produced events at Arcosanti, in Flagstaff, Prescott, and Portland. Founded in 1994, HNDT has received the Otto Renee Castillo Award for political theater, been featured in “Rising” a film about sculptor John Waddell, were funded by the Smithsonian and Dark Skies to create “Dreaming Dark”. The film “Dance Down River” shot on the Colorado River has been shown in festivals world-wide.
