BROOKLYN BOTANIC GARDEN

Delirious Dances performed at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden Gala on June 13, 2013, celebrating the expansion of the historic 102 years old Native Flora Garden. Edisa consulted with NFG curator Uli Lorimer to gather information about sphagnum bogs, prairie grasses, oak forests and the pine barrens – ecosystems represented in the garden and native to New York. The diverse and endangered ecosystems were the inspiration for the choreography, and the dancers costumes.


The music was by the fabulous Pixie Moss Trio, featuring:        Uri Sharlin, Katie Down, Matt Darriau

  3. I’m impressed, I have to admit. Rarely do I come across a
    blog that’s equally educative and amusing, and let me tell you, you have hit the nail
    on the head. The issue is something that too few men and women are speaking intelligently about.
    I’m very happy that I found this during my search for something relating to this.

  4. You could certainly see your expertise in the article you
    write. The arena hopes for more passionate writers like you who aren’t afraid
    to say how they believe. All the time follow your heart.
