An evocative performance that combines music, science, and imagery, merging the intellectual with the visceral to take audiences from understanding to action. Rising Tide unfolds in a series of vignettes exploring the natural world from which we have emerged—and the human world that has emerged from us. With an original score by composer Laura Kaminsky and narration by physicist Rob Davies.
The performance is in conjunction with Professors Elizabeth Miller and Andrew Latimer’s SHAPE course, "Envisioning Climate Futures." SHAPE (Science, Humanities and Arts: Process and Engagement) is a special project, funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, which links science and engineering, together with the arts and humanities in a new set of undergraduate courses.
