WHAT: On Beauty, co-presented by Nancy Karp + Dancers and the David Brower Center, is inspired by their current exhibition, Douglas R Tompkins. On Beauty is a site specific performance created by Nancy Karp, which celebrates the life and work of the late conservationist Doug Tompkins.

“If anything could save the world, I’d put my money on beauty.”-Douglas R. Tompkins

“On Beauty will reference imagery from the natural world in the choreography, exploring concepts of stasis and movement, darkness and light, a solid foundation and liquid motion over it, and how the boundaries between these opposites aren’t as rigid as they appear.”Nancy Karp
