Dances with Nature

Lyrical and spellbinding, EMBRACING EARTH shows dancers, under the artistic direction of acclaimed choreographer Anna Halprin (winner of American Dance Festival's 1997 Lifetime Achievement Award), moving with the shapes, rhythms and textures of nature. Intimate and meditative imagery transports the viewer to a place where self and environment merge, to a point of understanding that the forces of nature move within us, not just outside of us. EMBRACING EARTH is a meditation on nature, and an evocative tool for inspiring dancers and all artists to explore the depth and source of their own creativity.  (1995, 23 min.)

The sun shines not on us, but in us. The river flows not past, but through us. Thrilling, tingling, vibrating every fiber
