    On the Nature of Things: A New Work by Karole Armitage

    March 25, 2015 – March 27, 2015

    8:00 pm

    Milstein Hall of Ocean Life, first floor

    Entrance: Enter at Central Park West at 79th Street, under the Museum steps, accessible via the driveway on either side of the steps.

    Tickets:
    Balcony tickets (all standing): $25.00
    Orchestra tickets (seated or standing): $35.00

    Join them for a very special event as iconic choreographer Karole Armitage premieres a new dance production about climate change and its cultural context created specifically for the Museum’s Milstein Hall of Ocean Life and featuring music by John Luther Adams, Philip Glass, Michael Gordon, Henryk Górecki, and Arvo Pärt.

    Developed in collaboration with the Museum and Stanford University biologist Paul Ehrlich, the work was inspired by Dr. Ehrlich’s essay about the “culture gap”—the notion that 21st-century science has become so specialized that as individuals we no longer have a visceral understanding of the issues at stake.
