Glacier: A Climate Change Ballet

Ballet dance performance choreographed by Diana Movius, by the name 'Glacier: a climate change ballet,' draws on the impact of global warming. The contemporary ballet imagines dancers as melting polar ice caps.

“Live performance is a powerful medium for confronting some of the most challenging issues of our time. I want the audience to leave with a visceral understanding of why many care deeply about this issue and why more action is needed to protect our environment,” says director Diana Movius.

The Glacier broke ground in 2015 as the first ballet about climate change to be choreographed by a climate policy expert, and in 2018, it became the first ballet ever presented as part of an international climate conference last year in San Francisco. Climate Week NYC 2019, aligning with the United Nations Secretary-General’s Climate Action Summit, creates the perfect opportunity for a New York premiere of the dynamic work.
