Karole Armitage, Dancer & Choreographer
Fables on Global Warming
The Office of the Dean of Special Programs and the Department of Dance are pleased to present the 2013 McCormack Visiting Artist-Scholar Resident, Karole Armitage. Hailed by some critics as an heir to both George Balanchine and Merce Cunningham, Karole Armitage will showcase her new Fables on Global Warming, a 'performance art musical' about sustainability based on traditional animal fables from around the globe. The hour-long work explores the connections between humans and animals, culture and nature, science and art, entwining dance, song, and visual puns with Asian theatrical traditions.
