The New Bedford Whaling Museum will host a group of contemporary dancers to interpret a newly installed exhibition, Whales Today, through improvisational movements. The exhibition explores the science and behavior of these magnificent mammals in the world’s ocean. The live performance is set to music specifically composed by local artists inspired by the exhibition and its contents. Guests are free to explore the exhibition galleries throughout the night to elevate their experience and gain their own interpretations. An exclusive talk with the artists will take place after the performance.
