EXIT DISCLAIMER:
SCIENCE AND FICTION AHEAD

 

Exit Disclaimer: Science and Fiction Ahead is The Seldoms' 2012 take on the divisive national debate about climate change. It surveys the many divergent positions ranging from denial, skepticism, and indifference to urgency. Within this heated argument, who is talking, who is being listened to, and who is paying for it?

"Hanson is among the more fascinating and surefooted of our contemporary choreographers" - Chicago Tribune


 

"Conventional, Carrie Hanson is not. It's refreshing to see a choreographer who's always willing to test the boundaries of possibilities, even in the most polarizing of political subject"

- TimeOut Chicago


 

"Hanson's usual expert mix of somber, precisely calibrated and evocative abstract movement...with humorous dance theater"
