Water is Rising

7:00 PM - 10:00 PM
Royce Hall
Los Angeles, CA 90095-1529

Performance and purpose collide in this powerful world 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 result of global warming and climate change. Thirty-six 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.

This is a joint production of the Institute of the Environment and Sustainability, UCLA Center for Intercultural Performance, and Foundation for World Arts. The gala concert will be held at Royce Hall. Purchase tickets online starting July 22, 2011 at UCLA Live

Tickets from $35 ($15 Students)
