NOLI TIMERE a soaring aerial performance-installation–eight dancers moving up to 25 feet in the air within, on, under, and around Janet Echelman’s voluminous floating iridescent net sculpture. Rebecca Lazier’s choreography, with an original score by cellist and composer Jorane, daringly synthesizes experimental dance, avant-garde circus, installation art, music, engineering, public sculpture, and social practice. Noli Timere (“Be not afraid,” in Latin) makes the interconnectedness of the human and natural realms visible and tangible: a change in one element has cascading effects. The work hints at urgent questions: How do we survive in a changing world, cope with instability, and live with precarity? Questions like these guide the design of Noli Timere and speak directly to our current moment. 

In Noli Timere, performers move upon and within an Echelman suspended sculpture for the first time, the artists up to 25 feet in the air, a synergism wherein choreography and sculpture continually transform each other.
