Move and groove with artists Ariel Xiu, Ben Opie, and David Bernabo in an interactive artistic journey exploring movement and sound. ECOTONE brings together artists from different disciplines to create experimental performance presentations. An ecotone is a transitional space between two biomes; a site where two communities meet and integrate. Ecotones are spaces where a diversity of life can flourish, with much higher biodiversity than surrounding areas. Come create your own ECOTONE with us!
