Using the movements of glaciers across the earth’s surface as an entry point, this piece explores states of density, collaboration, collapse, overpopulation, relocation, disruption, environmental tipping points, mass graves, icebergs, and melting ice caps.
Glaciology is a site specific performance that combines choreography with human sculpture and interactive technology. This creates a surreal, constantly shifting image of bodies as landscape and simultaneously as capsules of history and memory; both human and geological.
Glaciology works with many bodies in motion to evoke the permanent effects of human and ecological conflicts. It takes the audience through the past centuries by overlapping and contrasting these images and ideas with the indelible power of glacial movements across landscapes.
