Weber Dance

Dancefest

Performance Date and Time : 
Saturday, June 17 9:30 PM

Weber Dance is a contemporary concert dance company that engages the public in the expressive power of movement. Over the past decade our work is deeply rooted in environmental issues impacting climate change. We strive to produce programs that enrich, inspire and educate audiences, helping them to develop a deeper of awareness of the language of human movement and the transformative power of live performance.
 
Our current work in progress investigates the sublimation of feminine power and wisdom in contemporary western culture.  For this work, I am interested in combining scientific discovery with mythical imagery. Research from the Hidden Life of Trees by Peter Wohlleben reveals the way trees communicate and support one another in the vast intricate network of the woodland. This deep ecology is partnered with ancient feminine archetypes describing a woodland network where feminine wisdom emerges bringing the wisdom of communion and an invitation to return to balance.
