Conceived, directed and choreographed by Richard Move, and commissioned by The Trust for Governors Island, Herstory of the Universe leads visitors on a journey across Governors Island—from the ancient trees of Nolan Park to the secluded lawns of Hammock Grove and the dramatic topography of the Hills—through a series of six site-specific dance performances. Each performance is inspired by, and in conversation with, its unique site, including the ecosystems, architectures, materials and species that dwell within. From the abstract to the fantastical, the works embody various biological and natural processes in a kind of biomimicry—telling the stories of Governors Island through a series of kinetic, strikingly costumed dance installations.
