On April 24-25th at 8:00pm at the David and Dorothea Garfield Theatre, within the Lawrence Family Jewish Community Center in La Jolla, Stella Nova Dance Company will present, Ahimsa. Stella Nova Dance Company has decided to go green, just in time for the rest of the world to also be talking about this crucial concept in our world. The production will tackle issues such as global warming, humans in relationship to the environment, and cause and effect relationships such as light, rain, and the growth of the earth. The company will also be incorporating global awareness into the production by using recycled paper for programs and postcards, vintage costumes, recycled products for props and LED lights. Ahimsa will be showcasing original modern dance pieces choreographed by company artistic director, Rayna Stohl as well as guest choreographer and company executive director, Molly Terbovich. ECO-Fair: There will also be an Eco-Fair in the lobby each night. The Eco-Fair will include displays and information available from local green businesses to help educate our audience on ways they can help contribute to saving our planet. Stella Nova dancers are also contributing by researching issues close to their heart and displaying this information for all to learn from.
