I have plans to go see this, if I can find the time this weekend. If it comes to your town and you are interested in the environment and our connections to it, I would suggest attending this production!  The concept is amazing!

Imagine being a creative dancer, spending time in the forest canopy of Costa Rica and in the wilds of the great NW,  experiencing the sights, sounds, and smells, of the forest, while practicing and performing the art of dance and learning how you can connect with the environment and learn something from each other.  That is the simple premise.

Dr. Nalini Nadkarni, world-renowned canopy tree ecologist and author, led a group of artists call Capacitor  from San Francisco, into the tree forested canopy of old growth Douglas Fir forests in Washington state and into the Monteverde Cloud Forest of Costa Rica to give the performers an opportunity to interact with their complex surroundings, she brought to their attention things like, fragile ecosystems, embracing wild spaces, & conservation of untouched biomes.  This production encourages conservation. Go see it, if you can!   Amazing!
