Voelker Orth Museum to Present Valerie Green/Dance Entropy in IMPERMANENT LANDSCAPE
Dance at the Voelker Orth Museum and Garden presents Valerie Green/Dance Entropy in Impermanent Landscape on Sunday, August 20th at 2pm at Voelker Orth Museum, 149-19 38th Avenue, Flushing, NY 11354. FREE, Suggested donation: $5.
Impermanent Landscape, choreographed by Valerie Green, is a contemporary dance performance in the round. The dance features the geometry and architecture of overlapping bodies, inspired by the ideas of perception, impermanence, and the shifting landscapes of NYC. Masterfully performed, with a sonic landscape composed by Martyn Axe, it has been adapted for the Museum's garden setting.
The hour-long performance is Dance Entropy's second appearance at the Museum. Impermanent Landscape premiered at Danspace in June. The performance actively engages its audience in ways that are delightful to audiences new to contemporary dance and those who follow it with a passion.
Impermanent Landscape is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council and The Mertz Gilmore Foundation Late-Stage Production Stipend.
