The Conservatory of Flowers and Kim Epifano's Epiphany Productions Sonic Dance Theater present Botany's Breath, a site-specific contemporary dance work with live music and video held at the Conservatory of Flowers, a living museum of rare tropical plants that is the oldest public glass and wood Conservatory in the US. Utilizing the Victorian edifice as provocateur, stage, musical instrument, and projection screen, Botany’s Breath will lead the audience on a walking journey through the galleries of the Conservatory – each one a different, highly nuanced ecosystem – and out into the surrounding grounds, in an exploration of the symbiotic relationship between plants and humans.

Collaborators include: composer and instrument-builder Peter Whitehead, musician Norman Rutherford, videographer Ellen Bromberg with Ben Estabrook, lighting designer Allen Willner, and costume designer Elaine Hamblin

July 10, 11, 12 and 13, 2013; 7:30-8:30pm and 9-10pm ( in addition short, free outdoor video/dance performances take place on those same dates from 8:30-9pm)
