Glacial Erratics / For Laurentide is the second section of a trilogy focusing on the life and death of the Laurentide ice sheet. The piece regards the sentience and will of Laurentide as a critical force in forming the contemporary landscapes of New York City and greater New England. The piece focuses on Laurentide’s journey as a geologic origin story upon which we stand. It serves as an exploration into embodied empathy with more-than-human entities, and holds space to mourn the loss of glaciers disappearing today. Our research incorporates the knowledges of scientists, geologists, anthropologists and artists. Collaborators include dancer Sarah Lass, multi-instrumentals Leonid Galaganov, and composer Aly Gear. Performed at Judson Memorial Church. 2019.
