Join in active movement research on the grounds of the Shattuck Observatory at dusk.  The trope of the cosmic dance has persisted for thousands of years, articulating a form of human engagement with the universe that continually morphs and reinvents itself. In this dance workshop/lecture/creative laboratory for her new project, resident artist Emily Coates will guide participants in the creation of personal choreographies drawn from stargazing. Dartmouth astronomer Elisabeth Newton will dialogue with us about our findings.

Free, tickets required.  Learn more here.
