On the Nature of Things is a new dance performance at the American Museum of Natural History choreographed by iconic New York City dancer Karole Armitage. The special performance will be at the Museum’s Milstein Hall of Ocean Life (the hall with the whale) only from March 25th - 27th.
The dance, accompanied by narration written and performed by biologist Paul Ehrlich, was inspired by Dr. Ehrlich’s writings on climate change and created specifically for the hall, incorporating iconic exhibits like the polar bear diorama. The result is a one-of-a-kind performance that explores the issue of climate change—and the loss of biodiversity that accompanies it—in a cultural context to illuminate the complex relationship between mankind and the natural world.
Ticket prices range from $25 to $35. Visit the Museum’s performance page for more information on the performance and how you can attend.
