Featured, among others, in the 2021 Toronto Dance Festival (Thu, Sep 9, 2021 – Sat, Sep 18, 2021) will be “Earth Body”, directed by EZTV’s Michael J. Masucci, choreographed by Donna Sternberg & Dancers, and scientist Devavani Chatterjea.
“The five dancers perform in the shallow water of the Pacific Ocean, in lush areas covered with green plants, in a burnt out area caused by one of last year’s California’s wild fires, and in an area with piles of garbage waiting to be towed to the city dump. Sternberg uses contemporary movement that reflects these various venues and one thing I noticed was that much of the movement was off-center, speaking directly to how our actions are rapidly destroying the balance of what Mother Nature needs to thrive and sustain life on Earth.”
