Jody Sperling’s New York Time Lapse Dance Troupe is famed for its swirling fabrics, breathtaking at moments they are caught in freeze frame and more stirring still in motion. (See photo above of her dancers performing the very beautiful Ghosts – Parade.) Sperling, who is also the a leading scholar of the work of modern dancer and choreographer, Loie Fuller, is now exploring a wide and forbidding new world. The Arctic. This spring she will accompany a scientific expedition on the Coast Guard Cutter Healy to study the sea north of the Bering Strait. There, she and an interdisciplinary team including a visual artist and two videographers will record “the transition from sea ice to open ocean.” Her project, “Ice Melt,” will document alterations in the polar ecosystem.
There will be a send off performance for project “Ice Melt” this Thursday and Friday, May 1 and 2. Friday’s event will be followed by a benefit party including champagne and a silent auction at the New 42nd Street Studios.
