“Art 2 Action” by Artists Climate Collective
Professional ballet dancers joined the Artists Climate Collective in their fight against climate change, coming together to create four new dances for the film “Art 2 Action”. Featuring 22 dancers from the National Ballet of Canada, Oregon Ballet Theatre, San Francisco Ballet, Atlanta Ballet, Royal Winnipeg Ballet, Terminus Modern Ballet Theatre and more, the film showcases styles from primal contemporary to soft ballet, including a comedic piece about mushrooms. The works/pieces are performed in contrasting locations, using the four elements of nature while focusing on environmental justice themes such as the Land Back movement, mycelium networks and environmental apathy. Tickets to stream the full film are available for purchase through November 6, and all proceeds will be directly donated to three climate change non-profits.
