Leave Them Something

November 14 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Virtual Event Virtual Event
Free

Explore the potential effects of climate chaos on our children’s future through writing, dance, and music inspired by the evocative artwork of Edith Vonnegut, Kurt Vonnegut’s daughter.

If chaos is fast and uncontrollable change, then how much longer do we have before “climate change” becomes “climate chaos?” This event combines the visual arts with literature, music, and dance to challenge the audience to think about what climate chaos will mean to future generations.

A multi-layered interpretive event, writers from the Indiana Writers Center will share original pieces inspired by Edith Vonnegut’s art. DK dancers will then share their choreographed responses to these writings for a deeply creative and immersive virtual gathering aimed at opening hearts and minds to the personal responsibilities we have in addressing climate change.

A partnership between JCC Indianapolis, Dance Kaleidoscope, Kurt Vonnegut Museum and Library, and Indiana Writers Center.
