If You Care About the Climate, You'll Want to See Jody Sperling's New Work
June 9, 2017

Tonight Jody Sperling, artistic director of Time Lapse Dance, advocate for the environment and expert on the work of Loie Fuller, brings a new performance installation, Book of Clouds, to Baryshnikov Arts Center in New York City.

Collaborating with visual artist Amy-Claire Huestis and composer Omar Zubair, Sperling uses light technologies, movement and sound to expand our perception of time and space in this climate inspired work.

Book of Clouds: Iteration III premieres tonight at 7:30, with a talkback session following the performance. Tomorrow, 10–2 pm, is a free family workshop for children ages 5­–11 and their parents, followed by the final installment, Book of Clouds Durational Installation—IV, at 3 pm. Tickets and info: timelapsedance.com.

In 2014, Sperling danced on the Arctic ice as choreographer in residence aboard the U.S. Coast Guard Cutter Healy. Check out this gorgeous video, Ice Floe.
