River of Stars @ Coconino Center for the Arts

Flagstaff Arts Council and Human Nature Dance Theater are pleased to present “River of Stars Show” in concert at Coconino Center for the Arts on Friday, May 10th, 2019. Doors open at 7:00 PM and the show beings at 7:30 PM.

This performance is part of the 2019 Celebration of the Night. Flagstaff continues to set the standard for effective night sky protection and started making dark skies a priority in 1958.

Human Nature Dance Theater is a collaborative dance performance group that creates original works of art through an interdisciplinary lens. Nature our relationship with the natural world is explored through this performance. In this specially commissioned performance, dancers Jayne Lee and Paul Moore begin with us in deep space: Nothingness. All that has ever been and will ever be, exist at the same moment. Everything is full of potential as the universe is still forming. Then a cataclysm occurs and the very fabric of our world tears apart. Here we are caught in this moment of darkness. Where do we go from here? How do we dance into the dark where our deepest knowing resides?

The show will take place on Friday, May 10th, 2019 at 7:30 PM. Tickets are $15 in advance and $18 the day of the show. Tickets can be purchased online, in person at Coconino Center for the Arts, by calling (928)779-2300, and downtown at Arizona Music Pro (cash or check only). All ticket sales are final – no refunds will be issued.
