“Interglacial”, a new multidisciplinary dance work by choreographer Laura Peterson, opens at 7:30 p.m. on Feb 11 at the Main Stage Theater on the Ybor Campus of Hillsborough Community College, 411 E 11th Ave. 

The dance work, also a performance on Feb. 12, “explores the urgent topic of climate change, inspired by minimalist geometric art and Land Art of the 1960s and ’70s,” according to a news release from HCC’s Visual and Performing Arts Program.

“A dance and visual art installation project, “Interglacial” is about deep time and the dynamics of nature that is designed to create a space for reflection on human impacts on the Arctic region of the earth and to encourage climate activism. In the piece, four dancers manipulate a set made entirely of paper transforming an icy landscape into enormous sculptures and become a tsunami that overtakes the stage,” according to the release.

Laura Peterson is a NYC-based dance artist creating works that challenge the limits of physicality and reframe performance spaces.

General admission is $15 and free to HCC students, faculity and staff.
