566 LaGuardia Place @ Washington Square South

Performance and purpose collide in this New York stage premiere that illuminates the plight of the Pacific Islands. Scientists report the vulnerable coral atolls of Kiribati, Tokelau, and Tuvalu are already experiencing rising sea levels as a result of global warming and climate change. 36 dancers and musicians express their deep connection to nature and their ancestral past through multi-part harmonies, poetry, and gracious movement cascading over dynamic rhythms, inspiring us all to be better stewards of our shared planet. Water Is Rising harnesses the power of performance art in an impassioned plea for global awareness and social change.
