“A Sea Change” Hits Stage

More than 260 people experienced “A Sea Change” — the interdisciplinary theatrical performance focused on climate change and rising seas — at FIU’s two performing arts locations on April 4 and 7. The event was a part of the eyesontherise.org initiative.

The performance, which featured dance, music, drama, virtual reality, and prose highlighted the work of students, staff, and faculty from across FIU that explained the histories and potential futures related to global environmental change.

Directed by theatre professor Phillip M. Church and produced by journalism professor Ted Gutsche, a cast of 30 told stories of the human condition at a trying time, as we desperately attempt to understand our own roles in the Earth’s response to our collective — and individual — choices of living.
