Please mark your calendars! On May 4, New York-based dance troupe Time Lapse is coming to Charlottesville to perform "Ice Cycle" in the Old Cabell Auditorium at 8pm. This multimedia piece, with choreography by Jody Sperling and music by UVA Music Professor Matthew Burtner, meditates on the precarity of Arctic icescapes in an era of global climate change. Initial comments call this performance "astounding, gorgeous, heartbreaking, and necessary." "Ice Cycle" is a crucial example of the growing body of art that translates the abstract fact of climate change into sensory details and narratives that hold people's attention. We are fortunate to have the chance to see it performed live. The event is FREE and open to the public; you must reserve your ticket through the UVA Arts Box Office.
