Poetry & Dance: Floe: The Seldoms & Gabriel Ojeda-Sagué
@ Poetry Foundation
61 W Superior St, Chicago, IL 60654
Opening Thursday, November 7th, from 7PM - 9PM
Experience an excerpt of Floe, a multimedia dance that addresses climate change with dance company The Seldoms, performed alongside readings by poet Gabriel Ojeda-Sagué. Charged by bold, exacting physicality and beliefs that dance can ignite thinking about critical social issues, The Seldoms’ projects are fueled by an appetite for research and incubated with partners from fields that include history and science. Led by artistic director Carrie Hanson, the company designs expansive productions with practitioners of visual arts, architecture, sound, and fashion. Ojeda-Sagué is the author of Losing Miami, a collection about the potential sinking of Miami because of climate change and sea level rise, and Jazzercise Is a Language.
