Raising Water Awareness through Science, Music, and Dance

Raising Water Awareness through Science, Music, and Dance

Grand Valley State University’s first collaboration between music, dance, and water resources combines artistic interpretation with scientific narrative into a performance piece to increase citizen awareness of the issues surrounding freshwater by tracking how humans have used the Great Lakes since the glaciers melted some 12,000 years ago – with the goals of inspiring audiences to become better informed and more proactive in the protection of water resources. These one-hour performances will be held on Friday, October 19 at The Block in downtown Muskegon and on Saturday, October 20 at the Haas Center for Performing Arts’ Louis Armstrong Theater in GVSU’s Allendale Campus. Tickets are not required for either performance but you must RSVP for the Muskegon performance: call 231-726-3231 to reserve your seats.
