Earth Play

The hole in the ozone layer might be shrinking and recycling programs may be on the rise, but there are still a lot of issues between humankind and planet Earth. It would take more than 90 minutes to get to them all, but that’s exactly how much time EPIK Dance Company will use to tackle a potpourri of sustainability-related themes in EPIK Effect, their new stage presentation.

Though a variety of dance styles – think everything from street to classical – plus video presentations and spoken word, EPIK will expose the impact of our “I want it now” society, choreographer Sarah “Saza” Dimmick says. All the work will be original choreography and incorporate literary techniques such as satirical irony to convey the message.
