Orbitreeum : MotionArt at the MN Landscape Arboretum

Arb 2

A magical, musical, mad-cap dance with 12 distinctively dynamic dancers in a magnificent outdoor setting at High Point.

SAT, AUG 16, 11:00am & 12:00noon

SUN, AUG 17, 1:00pm & 2:00pm

Orbitreeum is a site-specific dance in the round. It is a work specially created for High Point, a picturesque circular setting ringed by 12 trees surrounding a circular stone wall. The wall in turn embraces the sculpture Blütenmotiv by Rudolf Belling. We are interested in integrating dance with this place and reflecting the natural environment at High Point through the lens of human movement possibilities. This piece has evolved into an exploration of nature’s beauty, human quirkiness and rhythmic comedy.

This performance is in conjunction with the Arboretum’s 2nd annual Art Crawl Through the Gardens.

The entrance fee for the MN Landscape Arboretum is $14. For children under 12 years of age admission is free.
