OASIS: World Water Day Dance Performance
March 22 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pmFree
Temple University dance students, in partnership with the Office of Sustainability and the Department of Geography and Urban Studies at Temple University, present OASIS, a celebration of World Water Day.
The performances and presentations will address a range of issues: the global water crisis both nationally and internationally, climate change, protecting our oceans, rivers, and lakes, as well as meditative works looking at the molecular structure of water, how other cultures celebrate water and reflecting on how we treat water in our everyday lives. Every performance has the goal to question the corporate view of water as a “resource” rather than an intrinsic right, in addition to honoring water as a source of life. The dancer/choreographers are looking forward to the engagement period after the performance, creating an atmosphere of active conversation, beyond passive reception of a “performance.”
