Livestream Screening

6:00pm
Together, we’ll watch a screening of KT Nelson's Dead Reckoning, followed by a virtual Q&A with the artists.

Dead Reckoning was inspired by choreographer KT Nelson’s sabbatical in Death Valley in 2013, and set to a commissioned score by composer and cellist Joan Jeanrenaud. In this work, Nelson explores our relationship to nature: how tiny we are in its magnitude, how vulnerable to its changes. Dead Reckoning refers to navigating without the predictable reference points of stars, increasing the likelihood of accumulative error. Nelson says, “Today the rate of change in nature is unprecedented. How will we negotiate it? Are we in a time of dead reckoning?”
