Water Is Rising

SUN, NOV 20, 2011 (1:13:55)

The tiny Pacific atolls Kiribati, Tokelau and Tuvalu are facing the consequences of global warming first hand. Living at elevations of three to five meters above sea level, their inhabitants risk seeing their cultures become the first on earth to be submerged by rising seas. Discover through song, dance, and discussion the legacy of their traditions, their precarious position, and their desire that the world not overlook them. This program complements the Water is Rising concert, curated by Judy Mitoma, Director of UCLA's Center for Intercultural Performance, which brings together 36 carefully selected artists from the smallest countries in the world on their first performance tour in the U.S.
