Choreographer Donna Sternberg and her eponymous Donna Sternberg & Dancers have a penchant for sly humor when deployed along a light rail line in the series Transit Dances, but Sternberg also has a more serious side. For more than 10 years, her series Awe and Wonder has paired choreographers with four scientists to create dances informed by different fields of science. For this edition, the scientific worlds of immunology, geology, cancer research and microbiology are explored by South Asian dancemakers Aparna Sindhoor and Anil Natyaveda, as well as contemporary choreographers Bridgette Dunn-Korpela, James Gregg and Sternberg.
