Brandy Leary (Anandam Dancetheatre)
This collection was created to score the movement work of Brandy Leary and Anandam Dancetheatre's "Glaciology".
Using the movements of glaciers across landscapes as an entry point, this work explores states of density, collaboration, falling, shearing, collapsing, over population , environmental disaster, mass graves, icebergs, avalanches, lava flows and melting ice caps. These explorations are seen through a moving cascade of bodies to create a human landscape of choreographic activations and interactions that examines the question: How do we take care of each other in the face of our looming human and ecological crises? "Glaciology" premiered at the Rhubarb Festival in 2013.
