Belle Isle and Beyond

June 8 - 9 1:30 p.m. and 3:30 p.m.

The Detroit Zoological Society is hosting community members from Detroit, along with University of Michigan-Ann Arbor faculty and students, who have joined forces to create Belle Isle and Beyond, an innovative site dance performance that celebrates the synergies between Detroit’s natural and built environments. The family-friendly 30-minute outdoor performance will begin at the Belle Isle Nature Center and will travel to nearby sites outdoors. Admission is free.

The performances will take place on June 8 at 1:30 p.m. and 3:30 p.m. and June 9 at 1:30 p.m. and 3:30 p.m. The event also features an exhibit of art collages created by the Detroit Academy of Arts and Sciences middle school students in a workshop led by University of Michigan School for Environment and Sustainability aquatic ecologist and visual artist Dr. Sara Adlerstein, and Belle Isle Nature Center education specialist David Anthony.  In case of rain, the performance will take place inside the Belle Isle Nature Center.
