American Indian Dance Theater is now developing its largest and most elaborate production, a new full-length dance drama entitled Ceremony for Mother Earth: A Healing
, and a development workshop for this spectacular show is in the planning stage.
Performed by a company of 18 professional American Indian dancers, singers and musicians, this visually dazzling full-length production dramatizes one of the most compelling challenges facing the human race today: the impending destruction of the Earth’s environment by pollution, global warming, human failure and greed. Adapting tribal myths, legends and stories passed down through oral traditions for its narrative, the show depicts the struggle to stave off the alarmingly rapid decline of Earth’s ecological systems, atmosphere, plant and animal life, and human social structures.
