Tonight Jody Sperling, artistic director of Time Lapse Dance, advocate for the environment and expert on the work of Loie Fuller, brings a new performance installation, Book of Clouds, to Baryshnikov Arts Center in New York City.


Collaborating with visual artist Amy-Claire Huestis and composer Omar Zubair, Sperling uses light technologies, movement and sound to expand our perception of time and space in this climate inspired work.

Book of Clouds: Iteration III premieres tonight at 7:30, with a talkback session following the performance. Tomorrow, 10–2 pm, is a free family workshop for children ages 5­–11 and their parents, followed by the final installment, Book of Clouds Durational Installation—IV, at 3 pm. Tickets and info: timelapsedance.com.

In 2014, Sperling danced on the Arctic ice as choreographer in residence aboard the U.S. Coast Guard Cutter Healy. Check out this gorgeous video, Ice Floe.
