About The Show
In a world premiere, Water Is Rising brings together thirty-six artists form the smallest countries in the world–the Pacific islands of Kiribati, Tokelau and Tuvalu. With elevations of only 2-3 meters above sea level, life on coral atolls requires a deep respect for the forces of nature and survival depends on communal values and cooperation; music and dance are key to developing and expressing these values. Gracious gestures describe the abundance of their ocean; forceful movement shows the vitality of a seafaring life; poems speak of a heroic past. As they tour the U.S. for the first time, these artists will share stories of atoll life and solidarity amid climate change and rising sea waters.
Co-presented by the Foundation for World Arts, UCLA Center for Intercultural Performance and the Asia Society in association with the World Music Institute and Create Culture. Media Sponsor: Center for Traditional Music & Dance.
