Sub-merge: Raising Water Awareness through Music, Dance, and Science
Freshwater is one of the most precious natural resources on the planet. This project proposes to increase citizen awareness of the issues surrounding water by integrating dance, music, and science into a performance piece. Our unique educational approach will break new ground by combining scientific narrative (Steinman) with artistic interpretation through dance and music (Seidel and Cho, respectively), with the goal of inspiring citizens to become better informed, and more proactive, in the protection of our water resources.
