Aquatopia - A Participatory Performance!
Join Harmattan Theater under the direction of May Joseph (Professor of Global Studies, Department of Social Science and Cultural Studies, Pratt Institute) for the one-time ensemble performance of Aquatopia.
To address climate change, New York City’s storm surge plans for redesigning its coastal waterfront involves building new seawalls in the shape of hills, berms, and gardens designed for flooding. This live performance contemplates these vistas around and atop one of four new hills on Governors Island—the Scramble—designed by Adriaan Geuze under Leslie Koch’s stewardship and the architectural firm, West 8. Musicians, students, and community members collaborate and explore together seawalls, oceanic thinking, and ecological reimagining of formerly deluged sites in light of rising seas.
If you are interested in joining the cast, email May Joseph by Wednesday, September 27 at mjoseph | pratt ! edu or call 917-496-4678.
