After postponing for two years due to the pandemic, Analog Dance Works presents its long-anticipated inaugural event, Tellus. Two premiere dance works bring the company’s commitment to the exploration of the intersection of dance and science to the pressing theme of climate change, moving from Minnesota backyards by means of the familiar figure of whitetail deer to a broad look at the psychological effects of the global crisis. These choreographies by Artistic Director, Brenna Mosser, and company member, Zoë Koenig, are accompanied by an interactive exhibit from the University of Minnesota’s Outreach through Science and Art Group that reveals the science behind the art. The theater becomes a laboratory as Tellus embraces experimentation and play, investigating the rapid shifts shaping the world today.
