Art of Motion, Inc. presents PULSE: Resonating EARTH

(PARAMUS, NJ) -- Art of Motion, Inc. presents AOMDT in PULSE: Resonating EARTH on Thursday December 8, 2022 at GALLERY Bergen at Bergen Community College. The night features a live music, dance and immersive visual art installation with performances by the Art of Motion Dance Theatre, Sculpture and Art Installation by Poramit Thantapalit and Live Music by Steinway Artist: Carolyn Enger and Percussionist: Teddy Gibbons. Showtime is 7:00pm.

Renowned pianist Carolyn Enger will perform excerpts from her video enhanced program, Resonating Earth. From the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico to coal burning plants in the Ruhr Valley of Germany, from the glorious heights of mountain ranges in Alaska to mountains of potassium waste in Eastern Germany, Resonating Earth was created in response to the climate crisis. With a wide range of ambient music, including Bach, Debussy, Philip Glass, among others alongside stunning imagery of the environment by Peabody Award-winning producer Elliott Forrest (WQXR), visual artist Myles Aronowitz, and internationally-exhibited environmental activist and photographer J Henry Fair, Resonating Earth creates a soundscape focusing on the beauty of nature, and inspires environmental activism in an artistic, musically immersive way.

The program seeks to transport listeners to a still, meditative space, allowing them to decompress from their daily lives, inviting introspection about humanity’s place on the planet, and inspiring action to protect our beautiful, fragile world.

Lynn Needle/RYT 500 Founder/Artistic Director of Art of Motion, Inc. a non-profit conservatory and home to the Art of Motion Dance Theatre, toured to 6 out of 7 continents and more than 40 United States as a soloist with the Nikolais Dance Theatre.
