Event Description



We Touch the Earth, the Earth Touches Ustackles the topic of Climate Change/Crisis. Humanity is on the edge with a ticking clock. Who knows what changes the Climate Crisis will bring? But amidst the tragedy of our current situation there is hope. We must connect to, respect and heal the earth and ourselves. The dances are intended to raise awareness, heal, and inspire action. Most of the costumes and props are recycled or made from recycled materials. 

Perceptual Motion, Inc.’s mission is to engage dancers of mixed ages to create inspiring and meaningful experiences that open awareness, challenge perceptions, expand ideas and create community. Its founder and artistic director is award-winning choreographer Lin Shook. Shook and her dancers often step outside the box of traditional dance, refusing to take the easy solution, employing intriguing props and costumes, dancing on and under ladders, behind curtains with flashlights, in tents and under tarps, creating moving images, forests and oddball characters.
