Using familiar animal fables of Aesop, La Fontaine, traditional American Indians and Chuang Tzu, Fables on Global Warming blends the unique dance styles of Tony-nominated choreographer Karole Armitage with live music, imaginative costumes and traditional puppetry. Woven into the fabric of this powerful and enchanting performance are ideas about climate change, preservation and environmental stewardship. (approx. running time: 45 mins)

Tony-nominated for her choreography on the recent Broadway revival of Hair, Armitage’s unique blend of ballet and contemporary dance has taken her from American Ballet Theater to Paris Opera Ballet and most recently back to New York to form her own dance company, Armitage Gone!
