*On November 20th, you can be a part of history by participating in a choreographic and video collaboration in support of 350.org and ChangeAustin.org. For this outdoor event we will enlist the audience to help create human installations to be filmed from above and projected in real time onto the stage backdrop. Both the choreography and the images will represent the five elements that are affected by CO2 emissions: air, water, solar energy, earth and human life.
We believe this performance will present our audience with a unique opportunity to both celebrate life on Earth and appreciate the significance of 350.org and ChangeAustin.org as advocates for a cleaner environment, which can only happen through fair representation.
