Thermal: Meditations on Climate Change

We highly recommend this one: Set in the ornate ballroom of the Turnblad Mansion at the American Swedish Institute, Thermal is a multidisciplinary installation of form, movement, and sound centered on Earth’s changing environment. A sprawling sculptural paper artwork by artist Kim Heidkamp spills from the ballroom stage across the floor like a creature of Norse mythology asleep in the landscape. Composer Joshua Clausen and choreographer Mathew Janczewski of ARENA Dances activate Kim’s work with an immersive performance that invites viewers to slow down and appreciate the natural surroundings while simultaneously delivering a sense of urgency to act, and anxiety to what might happen next. Friday’s show is already sold out, don’t wait too long for tickets. FEB 25th-MAR 19th. $25-30
