About the Show

Stretch upon the slick stems of grass. Crawl your fingers upon the ground. Listen to the earth and feel the sun set. And when night falls, we’ll join the dancers of England’s Second Hand Dance as they squelch through the mud and play amongst the pines in search of a very special tree. In Sunny Days, Insect Hands and Night Tree, three dance films captured in the great outdoors invite you to look at nature a little more closely and explore the world a little more freely.

Explore the outdoors through movement in a trio of dance films.

Did You Know?

  1. Insect Hands and Sunny Days are packaged as a double bill—one video, two dance films—both shot in the great outdoors to celebrate the magic of the natural world.
  2. Night Tree is a woodsy and whimsical two-part film based on Eve Bunting’s book of the same name.
  3. In both shows, look for on-screen animations, from dancing, wiggly bugs in Insect Hands to fancifully animated captions in Night Tree!
