Arts in Nature

The performing arts can be a tough sell during Seattle’s six weeks of summer weather. Pop/rock musicians figured out decades ago that nobody wants to be under a roof, and made the outdoor festival or concert series an annual ritual. More esoteric music and dance are doing the same—not in a sun-drenched stadium, but in “the forested arms” of Camp Long. This weekend, the Nature Consortium is presenting dance and music in various ways: in five performance spots around the camp, installations inside the cabins, and strolling performers too—mostly people whose intimate art will blend well with the hushed serenity of the woods. Participants include the D9 Dance Collective, the Early Music Guild, and experimental musicians like Amy Denio, Bill Horist, and Byron AuYong.

Sat., Aug. 25, 11 a.m.-9 p.m.; Sun., Aug. 26, 10 a.m.-6 p.m.
