Astralis Duo

Rising Water is working to amplify the voices of regional communities threatened by rising sea levels through artistic expressions. Local artists have been commissioned to work with threatened communities to create new performance art reflective of the traditions, values, and beliefs that will be lost as rising seas swallow these communities. Through public performances of these works, Rising Water will creatively inform, challenge, and inspire the broader community to take positive action against sea level rise and climate change.

Your support helps us:

  • Equitably pay our participating composers, poets, video artists, and performers
  • Partner with local schools to hold student poetry contests (winner’s work will be set to
    music by a Rising Water composer)
  • Rent community-accessible rehearsal and performance space
  • Provide ticket-free performances
