Ocean Trilogy Performances in 2019
Monterey Ocean Arts Festival
In order to build momentum among local audiences for our upcoming performance at Sunset Center, and to maximize our capacity for this work to inspire the next generation of ocean stewards through the arts, SpectorDance is hosting Monterey Ocean Arts Festival on April 7, 2019 at SpectorDance Studio in Marina. This family-friendly community event will present ocean-themed works of music, dance, poetry, and other art forms and ocean scientists will give presentations about issues facing the ocean and cutting-edge ocean science. Visual art of all kinds from professional artists will be on display and available for auction. Twenty pieces of visual art will be selected from an audience vote to be on display in the lobby of our Sunset Center performance. For information, contact email@example.com.
"The show was wonderful, Fran! I’ve never seen anything like it. What a fresh, moving interpretation of the existential threat that our GHG emissions present – to our ocean and to ourselves. The dancers were both powerful and fragile, as we all are. Baba voiced some hard truths that I struggle with as a science communicator. The video and audio clips were clearly the result of patient, painstaking, thoughtful edits. It was breathtaking to experience these expert insights in juxtaposition with live movement. Tears came to my eyes several times, yet, I left motivated to push forward for collective action."

"Thank you again for a great performance tonight. Ocean Trilogy has grown so much. I liked it before, but now I love it. The dancers are spectacular, the video montages are stunning, the addition of rap between dances is entertaining and thought provoking, and
the ending is uplifting."

"Ocean Trilogy is a masterpiece in the making."

"Ocean Trilogy helps people connect profoundly with ocean issues more than we might just through our mind's ability to process information and connect dots. The impact goes deeper when our body or emotions become engaged, too.
