Head Above Water

In March 2022, the Class of 2023 traveled to Louisiana to listen, observe, and encounter the land, culture, and people along the Mississippi delta. Coastal erosion was the starting point, an urgent and layered theme that touches on history, economics, preservation, industry, and community.  Come see their original investigative performance work that springs from this remarkable research trip. The evening will also include other short performance projects undertaken at the culmination of their first year in the Devised Performance Program.
