Sustainability at Earthdance

 

By Kalyan Uprichard, Buildings and Grounds Manager

Some of us have asked the question: Where is the Earth in Earthdance?  It is under our feet right?

As an organization that holds space for exploration in the many expressions of dance but still largely takes part in the common consumer culture.  Is it enough to enjoy the dance and talk about art even though we still have a really big carbon footprint?
