Action Lines, in partnership with Joffrey Ballet and the Adler Planetarium

Experience the wonders of the universe through interpretive dance. Cosmic Rhythms connects the motion of celestial bodies with the motion of human bodies—the relationships that echo throughout the universe. Featuring Adler astronomer’s expertise, breathtaking imagery, and bold choreography by Joffrey Ballet dancer Xavier Nuñez, Cosmic Rhythms takes audiences on a mesmerizing journey through the cosmos.

Please join the celebration of this first-of-its-kind collaboration between Action Lines Media, the Joffrey Ballet, the Adler Planetarium and 150 Media Stream on Wednesday, April 10th (6-8 pm) at 150 N Riverside Plaza. Meet the artists, astronomers and dancers and enjoy light refreshments.

Actions Lines began with three dreamers, a single camera, and some careful guerrilla filmmaking. Xavier Núñez wanted to free the world of dance from the constraints of the stage, and brought on a small team to see his dream turn into reality. The world is their canvas. They show up everyday to experiment and express the spectrum of human emotion through the confluence of dance and film. Their mission is to inspire as much as they entertain.

CA Weaving by Sabrina Gschwandtner

“I’ve been driving between Los Angeles and San Francisco a lot over the last six months (there is no train there, still). I shot 4k and 6k video as I drove in, out, and between the two cities on the I-5, the longest interstate in California. I edited the footage by weaving together footage of ways that nature and the built environment interact with each other, reflecting on California’s promises and failures in the environmental and housing crises it faces.”
— Sabrina Gschwandtner
