    The tiny Pacific atolls Kiribati, Tokelau and Tuvalu are on the front lines of global warming and risk becoming the first cultures on earth to be submerged by rising sea levels.

    The tiny Pacific atolls Kiribati, Tokelau and Tuvalu are on the front lines of global warming and risk becoming the first cultures on earth to be submerged by rising sea levels. For hundreds of years, the islands’ history, spiritual teachings and social values were danced and sung rather than written. Now, as their fragile way of life is threatened, the 36 dancers and musicians of Water is Rising create an elegant, sensual and exuberant performance that expresses their deep connections to nature and the legacy of their traditions as well as their feelings about global warming. Their shared spirit and intense energy represent the joyful vitality of their collective ethos.

    Funded in part by the Expeditions program of the New England Foundation for the Arts, made possible with funding from the National Endowment for the Arts, with additional support from the six New England state arts agencies.
