Called “resonant” by the Washington Post, GLACIER: A Climate Ballet is a critically-acclaimed multimedia ballet performance that turns climate change into a live emotional experience. Part of the Global Climate Action Summit, GLACIER unveils a world affected by climate change by placing a changing Arctic environment in front of the audience. The dancers ripple, crack and plunge, embodying the science behind icecap collapse in a poignant elegy to ice.
GLACIER is choreographed by DC-based climate change policy analyst and former ballet dancer Diana Movius with a moving video backdrop by Robin Bell, a visual artist known for his #resist projections on Trump Hotel. GLACIER marks the San Francisco premier of the production and of MOVEIUS Contemporary Ballet, a rapidly-rising ensemble from Washington, DC.
