Learn About Our Project

Green Mansions is a groundbreaking new full-length dance work that tells a powerful story, igniting the human spirit, and inspiring love and respect for one another and for our natural environment.

By utilizing diverse dance disciplines and cutting-edge stagecraft technologies to transcend all language barriers, we will bring to life on stage the characters and rainforest animals of naturalist William Henry Hudson’s classic novel, Green Mansions, set to the vibrant and passionate music of Brazilian composer Heitor Villa-Lobos, allowing for all people to fully embrace the exciting new adaptation of this romantic and moving story and its vital message.

We are happy to share with you our journey to the development of Green Mansions as part of our 2012 celebration of the 125th anniversary of the birth of our composer Heitor Villa-Lobos, our vision for Green Mansions, and the Green Mansions story adapted for this extraordinary new dance event.
