Watch the "Last Dance" performance by Feral Theatre

September 27, 2023

On September 7, the U.K. based performance trio, Feral Theatre, performed their new piece, “Last Dance” to a sold-out crowd in ISM’s Miller Hall. The work, which centered on interaction with a sand-filled sculpture, raised questions about what happens when we face challenges such as irreversible change and the aftermath of loss. View the video of the performance here.

Last Dance was the first event in the yearlong series sponsored by ISM’s Religion, Ecology and Expressive Culture Initiative. Launched in January 2023, the initiative’s aim is to amplify cross-disciplinary and integrative work at the intersection of religion, ecology, and expressive culture. The initiative offers important resources to academic audiences and the broader public though the hosting of events and symposia, and the funding of individual and team projects.
