Chris Ferris & Dancers is back with Urban Pastoral, an outdoor dance with hand held sculptural lights and live music. Urban Pastoral is a dance made in the present tense, partnering with the great outdoors. Urban Pastoral sees 10 unique sculptural lights, 8 dancers, and live music. As the sun sets the audience’s perception is altered as the lights take on a greater presence.
