Dancing in a Hard Place

What can one community do in response to global warming? Dancing in a Hard Place is a site-specific performance designed to address this question and others. A cast of eight contemporary dancers will lead audiences through the exhibition space at the Muñoz Waxman Gallery, Center for Contemporary Arts (1050 Old Pecos Trail, 505-982-1338). The performers will dance, create music, speak, and respond to exhibits and to the audience members who share the space. Created by the local group Ground Space Collective, the 50-minute piece is described as “a group dream and reflection on the living, suffering earth around us.” Performances take place on Friday, July 8, at 7:30 p.m., Saturday, July 9, at 2 and 7:30 p.m., and Sunday, July 10, at 2 p.m. Tickets, $20 (discounts available), can be purchased at www.hardplace.brownpapertickets.com; it’s $25 at the door.
