The Food Web, Through Dance

Three dancers dependent on one another, as in the food web.

Three dancers demonstrate the food web in the production Ocean, which blends dance with scientist interviews, facts, and ocean photography. The choreographer, Fran Spector Atkins, hopes dance will help her message of ocean conservation reach more people. "With words, people just tune out after a while," she said. "But bringing the emotional of dance with the visual imagery and the words will reach people at different levels at the same time."
