The performing arts can be a tough sell during Seattles 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 samenot 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 toomostly 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.
