Artist in Residence in Everglades, AIRIE presents the premiere of a new dance performance, Where Earth Meets Sky, by choreographer and AIRIE Fellow 2018 Dale Andree.
Andree will activate the shores of Long Pine Key, focusing on tempo and the flow of movement that comes with congregating and separating. Inspired by the incredible connection between the earth and the sky, made apparent through the reflecting waters of the Everglades, dancers will ebb and flow between the audience and the landscape.
Dancers include Rebecca Pelham, Katie Brennan, Barbie Freeman, and Sun Young Park. Live music by Ray Robinson, Samuel Tommie, Luis Gonzalez, Pedro Ortiz. Artist talk and Q&A in the newly renovated Long Pine Key Amphitheater to follow.
