About Equators

EQUATORS is a solo dance piece developed and performed by Connecticut choreographer Arien Wilkerson that explores environmental justice as a major form of racial injustice. The work targets how climate structures like the Arctic Circle, the Tropic of Cancer, the Tropic of Capricorn, the Equator and the Antarctic Circle influence expectations for quality of life, order and territory. It demonstrates how emotional, mental, physical and spiritual well-being is affected by climate and how, in turn, climate influences the racial divides manifest in local geographies. EQUATORS touches on topics as wide ranging as the impact of zoning and gentrification, the deaths that take place within climate structures and how bodies react to human-made boundaries due to climate change and environmental unawareness. 

If a hurricane knew it was killing thousands of people, if wildfires knew they were destroying homes, if earthquakes knew they were pummeling people into the ground, would they still do it? Could they control it? Audience members who attend this work will be asked to interrogate their expectations of and relationship to climate, bodies, anthropomorphism, police violence, and environmental waste.

EQUATORS was made in collaboration with installation artist David Borawski and lighting designer Jon-Paul LaRocco.

The running time for this performance is approximately 30 minutes. Recommended for audiences ages 12 and up.
