Must human progress always end in destruction?  What are the risks we will take to restore our home?
Contemporary politics and childhood fantasies come crashing together in this unique event inspired the history of Appalachian coal mining.  Led by choreographer Adam H. Weinert, director Jeremy Pickard and composer Adam Miller, MARS features original dance, live music, graphic art and a strong ensemble of cross-disciplinary performers.
Our technology is opening new frontiers… and new mines.
We can go to Mars, hold the internet in our palm… and blow the tops off America’s oldest mountains.
The controversies and paradoxes of mining have never been more relevant.
In MARS, we explore these topics in our own unique way, and invite you to join in the adventure and the conversation.
Our residency at CPR is made possible by a grant from the Mertz Gilmore Foundation, “promoting vibrant communities, the performing arts and a sustainable environment.”
The rest of our budget (including artist fees) comes from individual giving.
Consider making a tax-deductible donation of any size with our fiscal sponsor, Fractured Atlas, by clicking HERE.  
All donors will be credited in our programs and receive our heartfelt thanks.
